  • 1. Oasis Identity In The Cloud TC Towards standardizing Cloud Identity Anil Saldhana (Red Hat), TC Co-Chair

Frustrations with Cloud Computing Mount Cloud computing lacks standards about data handling and security practices, and there's not even any agreement about whether a vendor has an obligation to tell users if their data is in the U.S. or not.

  • 4. Lawmakers worry about lack of cloud computing guidance In a letter to General Services Administration CIO Casey Coleman, Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., and Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., expressed concern about the absence of clear policies, procedures and standards to support the federal government's initiative to move many agency networks to platforms operated by contractors, or in the cloud.
