Advisory Note: Authorization in the Cloud - 70217

Report Details

Authorization covers the processes and technologies concerned with managing, enforcing and auditing the rights of access that individuals have to resources.

It is therefore essential that organizations adopting a Cloud computing approach ensure that the responsibilities, processes, models and technologies for authorization are taken into account when choosing a Cloud Platform or Cloud Provider.
