In the age of cloud computing, IT infrastructure becomes virtualised and takes
the form of services. This virtualisation results in an increasing de-perimeterisation,
where the location of data and computation is irrelevant from a user’s
point of view. This irrelevance means that private and institutional users no
longer have a concept of where their data is stored, and whether they can trust
in cloud providers to protect their data. In this chapter we investigate methods
for increasing customers’ trust into cloud providers, and suggest a public penetration-
testing agency as an essential component in a trustworthy cloud infrastructure.
