Abstract

© 2016 IEEE. The adoption of Cloud computing involves many advantages in terms of flexibility, scalability and reliability, but also implies new challenges on security, data privacy and protection of personal data. Since more and more sensitive applications and data are moved to the cloud, the verification of the digital identity of the participants in the electronic communication has become a crucial challenge. Currently, the use of biometric techniques can be considered as an effective solution to ensure a significant increase of security in the authentication protocols managed by modern authentication servers. However the use of biometric data for the logical access to IT services is a more challenging and still unsolved problem. The project Cloud for SME integrates a biometric authentication based on fingerprints with a cloud computing platform, investigating how highly secure authentication methods can increase the adoption of cloud computing technologies among small and medium enterprises.
