Cloud computing constitutes a new approach to the development and use of applications which, by taking advantage of the ability of more and more people to access the internet at high speeds, lead to the effective reduction of processing and financial resources. In general, it is based on the common use of a large volume of computational and storage resources in an efficient manner. The development of cloud computing systems is based on distributed functions and their interfaces are accessed over the internet. The debate on the cloud computing includes the security issue, which is the main challenge for its acceptance. Addressing security issues is essential for the success of the approach as from the one hand its dependence on the internet and from the other the fact that the data are handled by other entities constitute strongly weak elements thereof. Therefore, a check shall be made every time whether a cloud provider is reliable and able to face Internet security challenges.
