Cloud computing, without a doubt, has turned into the trendy expression in the IT business today. Taking a gander at the potentialsway it has on various business applications and also in our ordinary life, it can absolutely be said thatthis troublesome innovation arrives to sit tight. Large portions of the components that make distributed computing appealing, have challenged the current security framework, as well as uncovered new security issues. This paper gives an astute investigation of the current status on distributed computing security issues in view of a point by point overview conveyed by the creator. It likewise makes an endeavor to depict the security challenges in Software as a Service (SaaS) model of distributed computing furthermore tries to give future security research bearings.
