The cloud computing offers dynamically scalable resources provided as a service over the Internet. It promises the drop in capital expenditure. But practically speaking if this is to become reality there are still some challenges which is to be still addressed. Amongst, the main issues are related to security and trust, since the user’s data has to be released to the Cloud and thus leaves the secured area of the data owner. The users must trust the providers. There must be a strong trust relationship exist between the service providers and the users. This paper provides a model based on reputation which allows only reliable providers to provide the computing power and the resources which in turn can provide a reliable infrastructure for cloud computing.
