These days cloud computing is a main concern for small and medium enterprises. The major concern for these enterprises is about security and privacy. This paper defines privacy and concept of identity management that may help to increase trust in the cloud environment privacy. Cloud computing brings us on-demand service by reduction of hardware costs, but it also suffers from reduction of security. Enterprises scruple to decide which provider is a proper cloud provider by understanding the different types of IDM. IDMs have a major role in applying privacy in various services in cloud computing. Thus, it is vital to have a vision about accessing resources in a secure manner. This paper focused on the SaaS (Software as a Service) and communication on cloud computing environment.
