An Analytical Study of Cloud Security Enhancements

By Imran Khan Tanya Garg

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2024

Enhancements and extensions in pervasive computing have enabled penetration of cloud computing enabled services into almost all walks of human life. The expansion of computational capabilities into everyday objects and processes optimizes end users requirement to directly interact with computing systems. However, the amalgamation of technologies like Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Deep Learning etc are further giving way to creation of smart ecosystem for smart human living. This transformation in the whole pattern of living as well as working in enterprises is generating high expectations as well as performance load on existing cloud implementation as well as cloud services. In this complete scenario, there are simultaneous efforts on optimizing as well as securing cloud services as well as the data available on the cloud.
This manuscript is an attempt at introducing how cloud computing has become pivotal in the current enterprise setting due to its pay-as -you -use character. However, the allurement of using services without having to procure and retain involved hardware and software also has certain risks involved. The main risk involved in choosing cloud is compromising security concerns. Many potential customers avoid migrating towards cloud due to security concerns. Security concerns for the cloud implementations in the recent times have grown exponentially for all the varied stakeholders involved. The aim of this manuscript is to analyze the current security challenges in the existing cloud implementations. We provide a detailed analysis of existing cloud security taxonomies enabling the reader to make an informed decision on what combination of services and technologies could be used or hired to secure their data available on the cloud.

An Efficient Framework for Creating Twitter Mart on a Hybrid Cloud

By Imran Khan S. Kazim Naqvi Mansaf Alam Mohammad Najmud Doja S. Nasir Aziz Rizvi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2017

The contemporary era of technological quest is buzzing with two words - Big Data and Cloud Computing. Digital data is growing rapidly from Gigabytes (GBs), terabytes (TBs) to Petabytes (PBs), and thereby burgeoning data management challenges. Social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc generate huge data chunks on daily basis. Among them, twitter masks as the largest source of publicly available mammoth data chunks intended for various objectives of research and development. In order to further research in this fast emerging area of managing Big Data, we propose a novel framework for doing analysis on Big Data and show its implementation by  creating a ‘Twitter Mart’ which is a compilation of subject specific tweets that address some of the challenges for industries engaged in analyzing subject specific data. In this paper, we adduce algorithms and an holistic model that aids in effective stockpiling and retrieving data in an efficient manner.
