Cloud computing is a computing platform that delivers computing resources as a service over a network. Infrastructure, data, software, platform and many more such computing resources are provided by different vendors for different purposes. This enables the capability to hold control on the resources that the vendors are providing to its users. This paper focus on security aspects of cloud computing. Any operations over a network are vulnerable to attacks. The data present on cloud server is viable to risks such as theft or loss of data. In this context, securing data becomes top priority. Currently the cloud providers are providing their own security mechanisms. Building the security around the cloud may prove costly in terms of cost and time for a cloud provider. This paper focus on providing an open security mechanism that can be used by all cloud providers, thus achieving high security and manageability at affordable cost.
