Abstract


Mobile cloud computing is increasingly becoming popular among mobile users as a model for transparent elastic augumentation of mobile devices capabilities through ubiquitous wireless access to cloud storage and computing resources, with context-aware dynamic adjusting of offloading in respect to change in operating conditions while preserving available sensing and interactivity capabilities of mobile devices. The security issues of mobile cloud computing is a complex integration of cloud computing, wireless networks, mobile devices and web technologies. Irrespective of the high level of advertisement and publicity of mobile cloud computing, the degree of take-up and adoption is still low. This low adoption has been attributed to the risks associated with security and privacy. Protecting user privacy and data/application secrecy is key to establishing and maintaining consumer’s trust in mobile cloud computing. Security threats have become a challenging factor to the adoption of mobile cloud computing eventhough efforts are being put in place by researchers and the academia to ensure a secure mobile cloud computing environments and infractrustures. Regardless of these, mobile cloud computing environments and infrastructures have remained vulnerable with existing security issues. This paper introduces mobile cloud computing security issues and security framework consideration criteria. It further review and identifies the potential problems and current proposed work to secure mobile cloud computing.
