Cloud computing is a resource sharing paradigm through the Internet. Cloud computing provides the sharing of data, application and also provide the communication among the users. Universal example of cloud services are Microsoft SharePoint and Google apps provided by Google. The cloud computing field is growing rapidly but still there are some security concerns. Lack of security is the only obstacle in wide acceptance of cloud computing. The cloud computing has brought lots of security challenges for the consumers as well as for the service providers. How will the users come to know that their information is not having any availability and security issues? This study aims to find out the most appropriate security model for cloud computing to resolve the maximum of the security threats in cloud computing.
