Identity Management Framework for Cloud based Applications

Considering the significance of identity credentials in the digital world, Identity Management in Cloud has become an active area of research. Numerous Cloud identity management systems have been proposed so far; however, none of those systems holistically meet the dynamic requirements of various organizations and users, which necessitate a comprehensive and secure identity management framework for Cloud. Research in this domain must focus to develop a well-designed and secure identity management framework that not only suffices the user-centricity requirements but caters the changing security and technology requirements (such as data locality, synchronization, interoperability, limited disclosure etc.) of industry as well.
