From last two decades hype of cloud computing has been increased largely. With all of its advantageous cloud computing has some potential disadvantages. One of which is security . Cloud computing security has been discussed by many researchers. Researchers are paying their much attention about security of cloud computing. In this research we will investigate major areas of research in domain of cloud computing security. By using empirical study method we will statically prove that in which area there is most research in domain of cloud computing security.
