Cloud computing is an emerging field of computer networking which is providing opportunities to use hardware, infrastructure or application as a service. Many organisations are considering cloud computing as cost effective, secure and suitable solution for their needs. However security concerns are involved with using cloud services provided by a third party. In this paper, we investigate cloud computing by considering security awareness of the cloud services, critical security threats involved with cloud computing, good practice to ensure security within the cloud and the possibility of using ICMetrics or Biometrics based encryption to provide efficient security within a cloud computing environment.
