A Study on Security Issues in Cloud based E-Learning


Cloud based E-Learning is the method to reduce cost and complexity of data accessing, which are controlled by third party services. Traditional E-Learning methods are incorporated with cloud computing technology to provide massive advantages to the academic users but it compromises in security aspects. Proposed methodology ensures data availability and provides solution to protect indispensable data from the attackers. This study identifies different security issues in cloud service delivery model with an aim to suggest a solution in the form of security measures related to the cloud based e-learning. Different types of attacks in service delivery models of e-learning proposed by different researchers are discussed. Threats, security requirements, and challenges involved are also taken into consideration. This study of e-Learning models advocates users to access their data in the cloud through a secured layer using the internet. 

Keywords: Cloud Security, Cloud Service Delivery Models, Cloud Security Attacks, E-Learning, Data Availability, Cloud Security Challenges and Threats
