Abstract: Cloud security is today considered one of the main limits to the adoption of Cloud Computing. Academic works and the Cloud community (e.g., work-groups at the European Network and Information Security Agency, ENISA) have stated that specifying security parameters in Service Level Agreements actually enables the establishment of a common semantic in order to model security among users and Cloud Service providers (CSPs). However, despite the state of the art efforts aiming at building and representing Cloud SecLAs there is still a gap on the techniques to reason about them. Moreover a lot of activities are being carrying out to clearly state which are the parameters to be shared, their meanings and how they affect service provisioning. In this paper we propose to build up a cloud application that is able to offer Security level Evaluation based on SLA expressed in many different ways. Such application can be offered as a service by Third Parties in order to help customers to evaluate th e offerings from providers. Furthermore it can be used to help customers to negotiate security parameters in a Multi-Cloud system and perform Cloud brokering on the basis of a quantitative evaluation of security parameters.
