Platform as a Service (PaaS) in Public Cloud: Challenges and mitigating strategy

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review


Cloud computing is geared towards the effective and efficient use of computational resources and it has been making a big revolution in the field of information technology by reducing capital investment. It delivers computing as a service, that enables effective utilization of computational resources, rather than, a product, for a fraction of the cost. This paper explores key security issues associated with PaaS and proposed mitigating strategies are provided. These security challenges slow down the adoption of PaaS. Mitigating these security issues could increase PaaS adoption. This paper focuses on the security issues associated with Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering on a public cloud platform and provides various mitigating techniques to address these security issues. If properly implemented, we could realize an increase in PaaS adoption.
