Cloud (in)Security: A Matter of (t)Rust


Alan from the VirtualDC blog wrote a great post today titled "Cloud Security: A New Level of Trust" summarizing some of his thoughts regarding Cloud (in)security.

It’s a little depressing because that "new level" of trust he’s referring to isn’t heightened, it’s significantly reduced.  I’ll hack his longer post a bit to extract two interesting and relevant nuggets that focus on the notion of this changing nature of trust:

Security has different meanings and requirements depending on the context of how a particular service is accessed or invoked.

So moving forward, as the security people tear apart the (in)security of cloud computing, the rest of the world will just need to take that leap of trust. A lowering of our standards for what we can control in the cloud’s outsourced data model.

In simply closing our eyes, holding our breath and accepting that in the name of utility, agility, flexibility, and economy, we’re ignoring many of the lessons we’ve learned over the years, we are repeating the same mistakes and magically expecting they will yield a different outcome.
