Abstract

Cloud computing has become quintessential to information technology as it represents the foundation of all the emerging paradigms. Cloud computing uses virtualization to maximize resources utilization. Despite its benefits, organizations are still reluctant to adopt cloud computing due to its numerous security issues. Among the solutions that have been provided to solve cloud security issues, game theoretic proposals showed great potentials. In this paper, we survey the most representative game theoretic approaches to solve cloud computing security issues. We classify these approaches or methods based on their security scenarios and their respective solutions. We overview different solutions to control cloud vulnerabilities and threats using game theory. We also investigate and identify the limitations of these solutions and provide insights of the future of cloud security particularly on virtual machines, hypervisors and data security.
