Cloud computing has emerged to address an explosive growth of 
web-connected devices, and handle massive amounts of data. It is defined 
and characterized by massive scalability and new Internet-driven 
economics. Yet, privacy, security, and trust for cloud computing 
applications are lacking in many instances and risks need to be better 
Privacy in cloud computing may appear straightforward, since one may 
conclude that as long as personal information is protected, it shouldnt 
matter whether the processing is in a cloud or not. However, there may 
be hidden obstacles such as conflicting privacy laws between the 
location of processing and the location of data origin. Cloud computing 
can exacerbate the problem of reconciling these locations if needed, 
since the geographic location of processing can be extremely difficult 
to find out, due to cloud computings dynamic nature. Another issue is 
user-centric control, which can be a legal requirement and also 
something consumers want. However, in cloud computing, the consumers' 
data is processed in the cloud, on machines they don't own or control, 
and there is a threat of theft, misuse or unauthorized resale. Thus, it 
may even be necessary in some cases to provide adequate trust for 
consumers to switch to cloud services.
In the case of security, some cloud computing applications simply lack 
adequate security protection such as fine-grained access control and 
user authentication (e.g. Hadoop). Since enterprises are attracted to 
cloud computing due to potential savings in IT outlay and management, it 
is necessary to understand the business risks involved. If cloud 
computing is to be successful, it is essential that it is trusted by its 
users. Therefore, we also need studies on cloud-related trust topics, 
such as what are the components of such trust and how can trust be 
achieved, for security as well as for privacy.


This year, the CPSRT workshop will bring together a diverse group of 
academics and industry practitioners in an integrated state-of-the-art 
analysis of privacy, security, risk, and trust in the cloud. The 
workshop will address cloud issues specifically related to access 
control, trust, policy management, secure distributed storage and 
privacy-aware map-reduce frameworks.


The workshop includes but is not limited to the following topics that refer to computing in the cloud:
* Access control and key management
* Security and privacy policy management 
* Identity management
* Remote data integrity protection
* Secure computation outsourcing
* Secure data management within and across data centers
* Secure distributed data storage
* Secure resource allocation and indexing
* Intrusion detection/prevention
* Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks and defense
* Web service security, privacy, and trust
* User requirements for privacy
* Legal requirements for privacy 
* Privacy enhancing technologies 
* Privacy aware map-reduce framework 
* Risk or threat identification and analysis
* Risk or threat management
* Trust enhancing technologies
* Trust management

These topics give rise to a number of interesting research questions to be discussed at the workshop, such as the following:
* How can consumers retain control over their data when it is stored and processed in the cloud? 
* How can users' trust in cloud computing be enhanced? How can reputation management be used in a practical way?
* How can transborder data flow regulations be enforced within the cloud? 
* How can solutions be tailored to a specific context? For example, how can privacy and security requirements be gathered and matched to service provisioning in an automated or semi-automated way, and on an ongoing basis?
* How can adequate assurance be given about the way in which cloud providers process and protect data?
* How can audit mechanisms be provided for the cloud?

Software demonstrations are welcome. We encourage submissions of 
greenhouse work, which present early stages of cutting-edge research and 


The submission format must conform to the following: 10 pages maximum 
including figures, tables and references (see Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF 
format. The official language of the meeting is English. Please submit 
your paper to the CPSRT 2010 Workshop submission server 
( via an 
EasyChair account.


Peer-reviewed papers that are accepted for presentation at the workshop 
will be published in the CloudCom 2010 IEEE proceedings, and will be 
available in IEEExplore (EI indexing). The workshop organisers plan to 
invite the authors of selected high quality papers to revise and 
lengthen their papers for a special issue of a related journal or an 
edited book.
