Project Description: Security is one of the most important aspect of today’s cloud computing environment.  The traditional methods of security in regular networks are not applicable to Cloud Computing for a few reasons.  First, cloud need to remain fiscally feasible so they are limited on computation power consumption.  Second, there is a chance of physical attack that normal networks rarely encounter.  Third, unlike a traditional network, cloud have to interact with multiple network environment.

Student Tasks & Responsibilities: Students will conduct research directly with the project sponsor, write programs to create simulated environments, write papers, and possibly do a senior project on the topic.

Minimum Student Qualifications:  

Proposed Starting Date: Summer, 2012

Proposed Ending Date: Open
