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. The essential characteristic of Cloud Computing is that data and resources are held remotely from the users of that data and that access to that data is mainly over the internet.  The need to identify users, to control what they can access, and to audit their activities is even more important when services are being shared over the internet with other organizations. Furthermore the legal and regulatory responsibility for this management remains with the organization owning the data rather than the Cloud provider. 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.
