Abstract

Though security has become a major concern of a user using a cloud application, it is the responsibility of the cloud provider to secure the collected users data. The most targeted layer of a cloud service is the application layer containing too many loop holes through which an attacker can steal the users data. The service provided by each SaaS provider may differ from each one, but the threat level of all those cloud services are same. So the pressure of tightening the security of the application is with the cloud service provider. The provider has to analyse the possible ways his cloud service can be attacked, this analysis will help them to frame the preventive measures. The problem in this is not framing those preventive measures or implementing them, but identifying all the methods or syntax present in the source code which has the possibility to expose taint content and verifying whether the needed measures are implemented before updating them in live. The main aim of this research is to identify those codes and verify whether necessary measures are implemented to prevent the application from any attacks.
