Provenance Aware Audit Trail Framework With Summative Assessment On Qos In Cloud Environment

Divya Vadlamudi, K Thirupathi Rao

The task of service selection is a crucial issue in SaaS environment as per the customers need. Existence of SLAs may not purely help in service selection and also may lead in lack of ensuring quality of service. Various broker based frameworks in SaaS provisioning till now have focused for an optimal solution in either customer perspective or provider’s perspective but not towards a balanced solution. We propose a provenance based audit assessment framework to solve the above challenge using lineage of data along with utility computations for selecting a service. To enhance the quality of service our approach retains an optimal solution as we deploy auditor who plays a delegate role in SaaS provisioning. The auditor assessment helps in selecting suitable service provider based on consumer preferences using provenance aware approach.
