Recently, cloud usage has been increased drastically because of the simplistic and attractive features it renders. Moreover, cloud adaption becomes a tipping point that enables new ways of offering products and services with innovative, technical, and pricing opportunities. Despite these, cloud security is a major concern raised by cloud users regarding the security of their data being transmitted into the cloud.
There are several identified types of cloud computing security concerns such as data synchronization issues, secured communication between two parties, data storage security concerns, data confidentiality, integrity and availability, data intrusion threat, among many others. This literature survey presents the number of peer-reviewed articles on security threats in cloud computing and various techniques to protect data security during transmission on the cloud. This list of literature surveys in cloud security aims to provide various security mechanisms proposed by different researchers and potential future research areas related to security in cloud computing.
