A Consortied Ledger-based Cloud Computing Provider Users Reputation Architecture

Gabriel Vasques, Adriano Fiorese

Abstract

Several users and organizations have been attracted by the benefits offered by the cloud computing services. However, there are still several security issues and challenges in these environments. Controlling access to providers is an important task and must be carried out safely. In this sense, this paper presents a ledger-based collaborative user reputation architecture for a cloud providers’ consortium. The reputation is based in two indicators: objective and subjective ones. The objective data corresponds to the user’s session data. Subjective data, on the other hand, corresponds to the providers’ feedback about users and data obtained from external sources. The combination of these two indicators defines the reputation value. It aims to avoid bias in the evaluations carried out by the providers and possible conflict of interests. In order to evaluate the proposed architecture, a user cloud providers scenario was developed. Evaluation results show applicability of storing and providing users reputation values to participating providers.
