Cloud computing is an evolving paradigm that affects a large part of the IT industry, in particular the way hardware and software are deployed: as a service. Despite advantages of cloud computing, small and medium enterprises in particular remain cautious implementing cloud service solutions. Promoting transparent information exchange between cloud service providers and cloud users are essential premises to accomplish broad diffusion of cloud computing in the market. We believe that certification of cloud services by independent certification institutions can cope with the challenging lack of transparency, trust, and acceptance.
