COMPARISON OF DATA SECURITY IN GRID AND CLOUD COMPUTING
International Journal of Research in Engineering and Technology
In the current era, Grid computing and cloud computing are the main fields in the research work. This thesis define which are the main security issues to be considered in cloud computing and grid computing, and how some of these security issues are solved. Comparative study shows the grid security is tighter than the cloud. It also shows cloud computing is less secure and faced security problems. This research work is based on main security problems in cloud computing such as authentication,
... horization, access control and security infrastructure (SLA). Cloud infrastructure is based on service level agreement; simply cloud providers provide different services to cloud's users and organizations with an agreement known SLA. So the security and privacy of user's data is the main problem, because unauthorized person can't access the data of cloud user. Hacking and data leakage are the common threats in cloud computing. As the security due to hackers increase over internet and the cloud computing is totally on internet. At this time, cloud computing demand the tight password protection and strong authentication and authorization procedure. For an increased level of security, privacy and password protection, we provide a new strong authentication model named "Two factor authentications using graphical password with pass point scheme". This authentication model includes the login procedure, access control that is based on service level agreement (SLA) in cloud computing.
