Abstract [en]

This literature review seeks to identify the major security issues and their solutions in cloud computing security as well as identifying areas for future research. Utilising a modified version of the approach suggested by Okoli and Schabram (2010) 52 articles were considered for the review, of which 26 were included in the final product. Although many security issues and solutions were identified it has become apparent that much of the research being done only relates to the theoretical side. Thus this review shows that while plenty of issues have been identified future research should focus more on the practical implications of these security risks.

Abstract [sv]

Denna litteraturundersökning identifierar de huvudsakliga säkerhetsbristerna och de lösningar som åtfinns inom litteraturen om datormolnsäkerhet. Undersökningen använder sig av en modifierad version av metoden för litteraturundersökningar som skrivits av Okoli och Schabram (2010). Efter en första litteratursökning identifierades 52 artiklar som relevanta för undersökningen, av dessa 52 användes 26 i slutprodukten. Trots att flera olika säkerhetsbrister och lösningar för dessa identifierades var det uppenbart att mycket av forskningen enbart har teoretiska svar på bristerna. Undersökningen visar således att även om många hot har upptäckts av forskare saknas det forskning av de praktiska konsekvenserna av dessa brister.
