Cloud computing: securing the traffic

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I would like to host my applications on a cloud instance of Ubuntu server. The http server accesses the applications on the cloud server. I would also be logging in to the cloud instance from my office. The concern is that highly sensitive traffic flows in and out of the cloud instance and i need to maintain the secrecy of the information. The cloud's hosting facility should not be able to view what is being transferred.

The cloud's hosting facility should not be able to view what is being transferred. Please outline the steps to be taken for this purpose.

There are questions you should ask your self before enabling secrecy or privacy on your site. Who access the site and information? How long does the information you update on your site stay? Are there any logs in your site to enable you monitor whoever accesses the information and ensuring it is secured. If there are no log ins it is time to create them to ensure you are able to monitor activities on your site.

Then another thing is to move part or all of your physical resources to the public cloud. Another issue is to consider cloud computing vendors before deciding on whom to buy your services from consider what they offer and the security measures they have put into place. Allow authentication only via passwords or tokens where possible.

You can also use transport layer security (TLS) this will be of much help to you and also enforce centrally by cloud application. I hope what I have suggested here above will be of much help to you.
