Abstract

The cloud computing is an Internet-based resource sharing system in which virtualized resources are provided over the Internet. Cloud computing refers to a class of systems and applications that employ distributed resources for use in various applications; these computing resources are utilized over a network to facilitate the execution of tasks. However, cloud computing resources are heterogeneous and dynamic, connecting a broad range of resources. Thus, there are a large numbers of application and data center in the cloud computing environment. Therefore, the security issues of authentication and communication in application services and data center need to be considered in the cloud computing environment.
