How are you assured that your data is as safe on the cloud as it is in your own network? What are the security pros and cons of utilising the cloud? And what steps should you be making to ensure your cloud experiences are not only beneficial to your users, but are secure for your business. What you will learn What you should know In this article you will learn about the security areas to This article is aimed at those with a fundamental consider when adopting cloud solutions and some of the understanding of cloud and security concepts, but is written questions to ensure you ask. to be informative for anyone in an IT or business role who is concerned or has read about cloud security issues.S ecurity is one of the most important factors (being availability and accessibility).

The fact is that Perimeterless Security Tim Grance commented “accountability for securityis harder. and privacy in public cloud deployments cannot be delegated to a cloud provider and remains an obligation for the organization to fulfil.” This is a good thing and to be expected. Utilising cloud does not and should not totally devolve you of security responsibility for your users behaviour. In pursuing public cloud services, the guidelines recommend that organisations: • Carefully plan the security and privacy aspects of cloud computing solutions before implementing them. • Understand the public cloud computing environment offered by the cloud provider. • Ensure that a cloud computing solution of cloud resources and cloud applications satisfies organisational security and privacy requirements. • Maintain accountability over the privacy and security of data and applications implemented and deployed in public cloud computing environments.Figure 2.

DNS listens on port 53 where UDP is used to resolves domain names to IP addresses and vice versa. It can also enlist TCP on the same port for zone transfer of full name record databases. It is estimated that 20% of total Internet traffic amount is DNS traffic.D NS was proposed by Paul Mockapetris in 1983 QR – A one bit field that specifies whether this (in RFC’s 882 and 883), as a distributed and message is a query (0), or a response (1). dynamic database – as opposed to the single OPCODE – A four bit field that specifies kind of querytable on a single host that was used by the earlier version in this message.of the internet, ARPAnet.
