The next wave of computing is moving to the cloud. The cloud offers reliable, scalable, and cheap ways for companies to upgrade their business. It has revolutionized how we interact with each other today and is becoming an integral part of our everyday lives. However, when companies move to the cloud they need to set up their cloud architecture or data transmission securely. This leads to huge security risks in which sensitive data could be released. This project outlines the different threats and vulnerabilities that the cloud faces and the specifications needed for security. This research intends to evaluate the current security threats and their solutions to create a formal analysis that could be used when building all cloud architectures involving IoT devices to increase their security.
