Evidence for Accountable Cloud Computing Services

Evidence that allows assurance of accountability services, verification of compliance with the principles of accountability by service providers and attribution of responsibility for breaches within the chain of accountability is essential. This paper denes how evidence may be required and proposes suitable ways of treating key accountability concepts. It shows the importance of verication and assurance, monitoring and auditing, and challanges of evidence in cloud computing. A discussion of logging and evicence gathering points complete the paper.
