Despite its immense benefits in terms of flexibility, resource consumption, and simplified management, cloud computing raises several concerns due to lack of trust and transparency.

There is an increasing pressure by cloud customers for solutions that would increase their confidence that a cloud service/application is behaving in a secure and correct manner.
In the May/June 2017 issue of IEEE Cloud Computing, researchers say cloud assurance techniques, developed to assess the trustworthiness of cloud services, can play a major role in building trust.
