Abstract


The aspect of virtualization and large scale distribution has brought forward the cloud computing phenomenon. Despite its popularity, most of the enterprises are still circumspect in getting into clouds completely. The major part of this circumspection owes to the factors of identity and access management, monitoring, auditing and reporting.
