Abstract: The cloud computing is a paradigm shift for online services where the cloud computing provides resources, programs and applications as a service via the Internet and according to the user’ request. It has the ability to make use of computing resources with minimal costs and at high speed. It can provide users with a range of services, applications, and infrastructure and storage of a large amount of data, including important information. Despite the capabilities of the cloud computing, there is a question mark on its security. Therefore, security has become one of the most important issues in the cloud computing. This paper introduces the concept of the cloud computing, its characteristics and models as well as the various security threats that threaten the cloud computing, It also sheds light on some security issues and challenges in the cloud.
Keywords: Cloud Computing, Threats, Security Issues, Challenges.
