BCMS Honours Topic: "Discovery of security vulnerabilities in cloud storage systems."
There has been a large rise in cloud computing services and in particular cloud storage services over the last few years. Products like Dropbox and Google Drive are becoming more and more prevalent as everyone begins to use their services. The nature of the services means that there is often a large amount of personal data stored on the cloud servers. Because Cloud storage is still a new and growing field it means that there is still a large potential for new undiscovered exploits to be found. These two facts mean that they are a very attractive target for criminals looking to maliciously use your data. This project will attempt to investigate and find common security vulnerabilities in these growing cloud storage services. After any vulnerabilities are found they are then reported, to ensure that these cloud services storages can remain safe and effective in the future.
