Using Goal-Question-Metric (GQM) approach to assess security in cloud storage
Assessing the security of data stored in cloud storage can be carried out by developing goal-based measurement items. The measurement items can be utilized to construct a security assessment model based on practical needs. The measurement items can assist in acquiring support decision making on the implementation of a security frameworks. This paper discusses the Goal-Question-Metrics (GQM) approach and its application towards constructing measurement items for a security metric. It also attempts to provide practical guidance and example of measurements using GQM. An application of the GQM paradigm towards the development of a security metric is presented. The metrics obtained will assist organizations to meet their requirements for a cloud storage security framework.

Abstract

Assessing the security of data stored in cloud storage can be carried out by developing goal-based measurement items. The measurement items can be utilized to construct a security assessment model based on practical needs. The measurement items can assist in acquiring support decision making on the implementation of a security frameworks. This paper discusses the Goal-Question-Metrics (GQM) approach and its application towards constructing measurement items for a security metric. It also attempts to provide practical guidance and example of measurements using GQM. An application of the GQM paradigm towards the development of a security metric is presented. The metrics obtained will assist organizations to meet their requirements for a cloud storage security framework.
