Secure Communication in Mobile Clouds

Cloud services can greatly enhance the computing capability of mobile devices. Cloud computing for mobile devices enables running applications between resource-constrained devices and Internet-based Clouds. Mobile users can rely on the cloud to perform computationally intensive operations such as searching, data mining, and multimedia processing. The sensed information through mobile, such as location coordinates, health related information, should be processed and stored in a secure fashion to protect user’s privacy in the cloud. There is a need to address privacy, access control, identity management, trust management, secure routing, security monitoring and risk management issues in the mobile Cloud.
