Abstract: We present RaaS (Reputation as a Service), a set of accountable reputation ranking schemes for service providers in cloud computing architectures. RaaS provides a secure reputation reporting system producing results and recommendations that can be published as a service and verified by trusted third parties or by the cloud service providers themselves. The reputation service is based on an assortment of ranking criteria ranging from multilevel performance and quality of service measures to security and pricing assessments. This makes RaaS a valuable IT component in supporting verifiable and accountable compliance with service-level agreements and regulatory policies, encouraging competition among cloud providers for better security and quality of service, and providing new and existing cloud customers with valuable advice for selecting the appropriate cloud service provider(s) that suit their performance, budgeting, and security requirements. The RaaS reputation system does not rely o n subjective feedback from cloud customers but rather carry out the reputation calculation based on observable actions extracted from the computing cloud itself. A proof of concept implementation shows that the incorporated RaaS protocols impose minimal overhead on the overall system performance. (More)
