Cloud computing is a central topic in computing systems due to its importance in daily life. Although it has been developed to provide services to consumers for storing and manipulating data quickly and at low cost, it still suffers from various problems from a security perspective. Security concerns in cloud environment still require further investigation and development. In this paper, a dynamic security management system for cloud computing based on electronic trust is proposed. The system studies and evaluates the relations in two directions between end users, the data owner, and the provider. It manages data security by updating trust values for access permissions and authentication purposes. Developing the proposed system will evaluate trust relations between entities, show flexibility in its calculations and provide dynamic access control while monitoring the entities’ interactions over time.
