A Model for Mobile Agent based Security in Cloud Computing

L. Venkatakrishnan


Cloud computing is a type of computing that is comparable to grid computing. It relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle application. Cloud Computing gives you the ability to run applications and access data from your PC, Mac or mobile device through internet. Apart from the web browser or user interface, no other local software or data storage is required. Security plays a vital role in an internet world. Secured authentication, confidentiality, privacy, data integrity, etc.., are constraints to ensure security. Cloud computing security is secluded from any other security like network security, information security. Since, it has been rely on the infrastructure where nodes are interconnected for providing cloud services. In this paper we have proposed a model to ensure cloud computing security using mobile agents, best fit algorithm and match making algorithm in an interconnected cloud computing nodes which are used for providing seamless services to client.
