Cloud computing

This paper explores the technical and legal issues involved in using Cloud technologies from the perspective of an Australian business interested in both customer and government attitudes, and discusses how moves to implement jurisdiction location and control preferences have been characterised as Data Sovereignty and Digital Protectionism by differing interests.

This paper describes the rationale behind AARNet?s involvement in providing a range of value-added services over its Research and Education high-speed network. Special emphasis is given to services offered ?in the Cloud?, and in particular concentrating on its latest service offering, Cloudstor+, which provides Cloud storage to researchers across Australia.

A structured bibliography is provided to assist research into the late-2013 status of cloud and data sovereignty (or ?digital protectionism?) policy discussions in Australia and elsewhere.

This paper describes the activities of Cloud Sweden, a large group of IT and legal professionals in Sweden who collaborate to develop guidelines for safe use of cloud computing. In this article you will find a sample of what the legal group of Cloud Sweden has produced ? a primer of legal issues that a manager should pay attention to before making the leap into the Cloud.

Cloud computing inherently comes with a number of vulnerabilities that increase the space for cyber attacks. This paper aims to provide an overview of major potential risks to privacy and security in the cloud. Various emerging threats and attack methods are discussed, and some speculative future research directions are presented.

An overview of cloud computing is given, describing its different deployment types, its service models, the parallel programming framework that underpins it, and the issues in security management and privacy regulation.
