Sammendrag
The uptake of cloud computing is hindered by the fact that current cloud SLAs are not written in machine-readable language, and also fail to cover security requirements. This article considers a cloud brokering model that helps negotiate and establish SLAs between customers and providers. This broker handles security requirements on two different levels: between the customer and the broker, where the requirements are stated in natural language; and between the broker and different cloud providers, where requirements are stated in deontic contract languages. There are several such languages available today with different properties and abstraction levels, from generic container languages to more domain-specific languages for
specifying the various details in a contract. In this article, we investigate the suitability of ten deontic contract languages for expressing security requirements in SLAs, and exemplify their use in the cloud brokering model
through a practical use case for a video streaming service.
