Cloud Security Architecture

Cloud security architecture must take into account the three large cloud security challenges as identified by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA): Multi-tenancy, divided responsibility, and dynamic environment.

  • Multi-tenancy
    • Resources are shared between tenants according to Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
    • Each provider is responsible for a proper isolation of its tenants’ computing, networking and storage resources
  • Divided responsibility
    • Besides the provider, tenants also have the responsibility to protect their assets
    • Dividing responsibility between the provider and the tenant depends on the SLA and needs to be agreed between the actors before the service is taken in use
  • Dynamic environment
    • The cloud environment is constantly evolving, and resources may dynamically scale up and down or even change their locations
    • Security policies have to capture and govern these dynamic changes

The experienced cloud security architects at design and build secure cloud environments keeping these three factors in mind throughout the process.
