Abstract: Cloud computing, is fast growing Technology having its originations from Distributed computing technology. Cloud computing is a collaboration of different computing technologies and it has many advantages in the field of data storage, high expansibility, high reliability, virtualization, and low price service. Cloud computing has massive effects how we store and access our personal and business data. It is a matter of great concern to secure personal information and data from attacks like DDos, MIMA and data theft. And therefore it is extremely important to understand the existing security issues and risks in cloud computing. This paper analyses the above mentioned existing security issues and protection against threats in cloud computing. This paper is to quantify the need of security between networks in cloud computing, therefore minimizes the vulnerabilities.
Keywords: DDos, man in the middle attack, packet sniffing.
