题 目：Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing: Challenges and Opportunities
报告人：Professor Yang Xiang
摘要：Cloud Computing has pervaded all aspects of our daily lives. With its unparalleled popularity, cloud computing has evolved from a set of technologies to supporting infrastructure to human society. Its evolution has influenced every technological, societal, and cultural aspect of human beings. It has been widely recognized that security and privacy are the critical issues in cloud computing. On one hand, clouds have been the effective platform for the attackers to launch attacks, collect private information, and distribute malicious information. On the other hand, privacy leakage through clouds has become common exercise. New methods and tools, consequently, must follow up in order to adapt to this emerging security paradigm. In this talk, we will discuss the security and privacy issues in cloud computing and how we can turn challenges into opportunities to build a more secure cyberspace.
