System Requirement Specification
Users fears of losing the control of their own data, while it
is being processed by remote. To solve this problem, a new
highly decentralized information accountability framework
is proposed to track usage of users data in cloud by
providing logging and auditing mechanisms.

The delivery of computing services over the Internet.

Cloud services allow individuals and businesses to use
software and hardware.

E.g.: Online file storage, webmail and online business

Cloud Computing
Service models

SaaS: Software as a Service

PaaS: Platform as a Service

IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service.

IPMaaS: Identity and Policy Management as a Service

Conventional access control approaches developed for
closed domains using a centralized server.
Data handling can be outsourced by the direct cloud service
provider (CSP).
