Analysis of security services in cloud based internet of things
Dr. Syed Nisar Ahmed
Cloud computing technology is enabling IT to do more with the infrastructure that already exists, as well as adding new ways to expand capacity quickly and economically by using external cloud computing resources. Given the benefits of cloud computing, its broad appeal is not surprising. However, this new approach does raise some concerns. Chief among them is securing data in the cloud. Cloud Computing is a flexible, cost-effective, and proven delivery platform for providing business or consumer IT services over the Internet. However, cloud Computing presents an added level of risk because essential services are often outsourced to a third party, which makes it harder to maintain data security and privacy, support data and service availability, and demonstrate compliance. Cloud Computing leverages many technologies (SOA, virtualization, Web 2.0). Cloud computing promises to make the billions of low-profile “things” in the IoT resource rich by enhancing their processing and storage capabilities, but it also brings forth security and privacy concerns. Smart devices have become an intricate part of our everyday lives. The development of these devices has also led to numerous notable innovations in communication technologies, which aim to improve connectivity and accelerate traffic flow. Information and communication technologies (ICT) are now moving toward the Internet of Things (IoT), a new paradigm in which smart objects or “things” interact with each other and with humans to achieve objectives. Conventional infrastructure security controls designed for dedicated hardware do not always map well to the cloud environment. Nonetheless, the concept of cloud computing for IoT brings forth security and privacy concerns. The comprehensive connectivity topographies of these technologies leave them open to malicious attacks and destabilization of normal processes and trust. In this article, we present an IoT cloud architecture that allows connection of users, their devices and the cloud system in a modular way.
