Main

Goal

Goal of the project is to maintain a list of top 10 security risks faced with the Cloud Computing and SaaS Models. List will be maintained by input from community, security experts and security incidences at cloud/SaaS providers.

Audience

Audience for the project will be organizations planning on leveraging external cloud environment to host their applications or rent application in a SaaS model (Software as a Service). Aim of the "OWASP Cloud-10" list is to help balance security risks with the cost advantage that the Cloud and SaaS model provides. We expect the Cloud and SaaS providers to be indirect audience for "OWASP Cloud-10", when they try to showcase their security controls to potential customers against this list.

Managing OWASP Cloud-10 List (Pre-Alpha)

“OWASP Cloud-10” list will be maintained by input from, community, security experts and security incidences at cloud/SaaS providers.

Each of the identified risk in "OWASP Cloud-10" will provide details on:

  • Various Risk Scenarios
  • Real World Examples
  • Possible Mitigations and Security Controls
  • Reference to any related Incident


OWASP Cloud-10 List

Initial pre-alpha list of OWASP Cloud-10 Security Risks

C1 - Privacy of Users [Placeholder] - User's private and PII data gets stored in the cloud
C2 - Enterprise Data Hosted Outside in Cloud
C3 - Accountability and Ownership of Data Security
C4 - Federating User Identity
C5 - Secondary Usage of Data
C6 - Demonstrating Regulatory Compliance
C7 - SLA - Building Right Level of insurance and accountability
C8 - Vendor Lock-In
C9 - Data Backup and Disaster Recovery
C10 - Direct Exposure to Development and Production Environments


Table 1: Top 10 Cloud - Security Risks

Other OWASP Cloud-10 Candidates

  • Service Availability Risk
  • Multi-Tenancy
  • Integration between cloud and internally hosted services
  • Patching and Vulnerability Management
  • Lack of Transparency in Internal Security Controls and difficulty/complexity of auditing
  • Enterprise Intranets exposed directly on Internet (if they move on a Public Cloud)


This needs to be debated and for each of these we may need to add a separate page-holder with the following details.

  • Various Risk Scenarios
  • Real World Examples
  • Possible Mitigation and Security Controls
  • Reference to any related Incident


Roadmap (Status)

Alpha State

  1. Identify and publish a first draft of potential "OWASP Cloud-10" candidates (July 2009)
  2. Ask contributors to collect more data and details on each of the risk item. (till Aug 2009)
  3. Get initial community feedback by discussing it in various blogs, discussion forums etc. (till Aug-Sept 2009)

Beta State

  1. Publish the first (beta) list of "OWASP Cloud-10" (Oct 2009)
  2. Identify additional candidates
  3. ……. (repeat steps as in Alpha)
