ISA-based model for risk detection in Cloud Computing environment

pdf PDF



Cloud computing is the result of the evolution and the adoption of existing technologies and paradigms. Because of its accessibility via internet, that makes it subject to a large variety of attacks. In present paper, we focus on risk assessment by using an intelligent software agent to develop an immune system of cloud
