Special Focus 3/2011 Sustainable Cloud Computing

-------------------------------------------------------------

--------

After Mainframe and Client-Server computing, Cloud computing is the next 

computing paradigm. Cloud computing is the modern version of the time-

sharing computing model of 1960s but with the main difference that individuals 

and enterprises make use of services "out of the Internet’s Cloud" via a web 

browser, share computing power as well as data storage. The data disclosure 

from users of a Cloud and at the same time the data federation at software 

service providers of the Cloud facilitate the secondary use of personal data and 

digital content stored in this, on a massively shared scale infrastructure, e.g. for 

data analysis by a third party. Approaches to start the advance of secondary use 

and disclosure of personal data and digital content to third parties around the 

world show the need of solving various problems: 



(a) Legal regulations, such as SOX, HIPAA and data protection acts, may prohibit 

the use of the Cloud for some applications. For instance, the European Data 

Protection Directive limits the cross-border disclosure of personal data. An 

approach is to apply the strictest rules which can restrict the opportunities of 

cloud computing and increase its costs.



(b) Software service providers do not offer Service Level Agreements. In spite of 

that the availability of the users’ data is mandatory. Enterprises will not use 

Cloud computing for their mission critical applications if the availability and 

reliability of the services of a Cloud are not guaranteed.



(c) Even though individuals and companies can protect their information system 

by firewalls and intrusion detection systems, they cannot protect their business 

processes and data from software service providers of a Cloud. A Cloud is a 

black box: Security processes and data storage are hidden by the abstraction of 

the Cloud. Users have to trust the software service providers that they will 

follow the legal regulations and agreed-upon policy for using personal data and 

digital content. 



Electronic health records (EHR) are one example. They accumulate medical data 

of patients to improve their availability and completion. This in turn increases 

the efficiency of business processes for medical services and supports the 

secondary use of health data, e.g. for statistics. As EHR are not tied to a single 

medical institution they may be offered, from enterprises, with the capacity and 

knowledge to maintain this kind of databases. Legislation, e.g. the US American 

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the German Act 

for the Modernization of the Health Insurance by Law (GMG) usually prohibit any 

disclosure to third parties without the patient’s explicit agreement. Existing 

systems for EHR comply with this by letting the patients decide on the usage 

and disclosure of their data. But they fail in providing four essential safeguards. 

Firstly, they do not guarantee the reliability of their service and availability of the 

EHR. Secondly, they do not offer mechanisms to guarantee the compliance of 

the EHR system especially regarding the enforcement of patients’ decisions. 

Thirdly, patients cannot postulate or enforce obligations on further usage and 

disclosures of their data after an authorized disclosure. Finally, they fail to 

guarantee confidentiality towards the EHR system provider, who should not be 

able to access the data since this increases the risk of unauthorized 

disclosure.The special focus "Sustainable Cloud Computing" calls for original 

papers on methodologies, technologies and best practices for solving the 

problems of reliability, compliance and data protection in cloud computing. 

They should contribute to sustainable Cloud computing across different 

domains of regulation and trust. 



Contributions from research and business practice on the following (and 

related) topics are invited:



- De-perimeterization and IT risk management for Cloud computing

- Reliable and secure interaction of services

- Authentication and authorization for Cloud computing

- Private information processing and multi-party computing

- Privacy-enhancing technologies for the secondary use of personal data

- IT-compliance and data protection strategies for Cloud computing under 

different legislations

- Best practices for de-perimeterization in Cloud computing

- Economics of Cloud computing 



Submission

----------------

Please submit papers by 2010-07-01 at the latest via the journal's online 

submission system (http://www.editorialmanager.com/buis/). Please observe 

the instructions 

regarding the format and size of contributions to Business & Information 

Systems Engineering (BISE) / WIRTSCHAFTSINFORMATIK. Papers should not

5,000 characters per page for illustrations. Detailed authors’ guidelines are 

available at http://www.bise-journal.org. 



All papers will be reviewed anonymously (double-blind process) by several 

referees with regard to relevance, originality, and research quality. In addition to 

the editors of the journal, including those of this special focus, distinguished 

national and international professionals with scientific and practical 

backgrounds will be involved in the review process. 



Complementary articles covering topics of this special focus are also more than 

welcome. 



Accepted papers will appear identically in English and German. The English-

language version will appear in Business & Information Systems Engineering 

(BISE), the German-language version will appear in WIRTSCHAFTSINFORMATIK. 

Accepted papers will be translated in close cooperation with the authors and a 

professional team of translators.
