Main Article Content
The cloud computing techniques bring different security challenges. In this paper, we set up ownCloud as the example cloud computing infrastructure. Then we present our work process and results of a series of penetration testing performed on the ownCloud.Â We also analyse these results and give key recommendations for addressing the identified vulnerabilities.
Â Keywords: cloud computing, security, penetration tesing, owncloud
