Title: End User to Cloud Authentication Use Case

Use Case Description: An end user is accessing data or applications in the cloud.

Use Case Category: Cloud Computing

Contributor: NIST Cloud Computing Use Cases

Use Case Details


  • End User
  • Cloud Provider




Process Flow:

Success Scenario: A user of Gmail, Facebook or LinkedIn accesses the application and their data through any browser on any device. The cloud service must authenticate the end user. Access to the cloud service should not require a particular platform or technology.

Error Conditions: No internet access, no end user data access.

Security and Privacy policies of Cloud Vendor must be commensurate with End User goals.

Although service level agreements for end users will usually be much simpler than those for enterprises, cloud vendors must be clear about what guarantees of service they provide.
