End-to-end security in the cloud has gained even more importance after the outbreak of data breaches and massive surveillance programs around the globe last year. While the
community features a number of cloud-based security mechanisms, existing solutions either provide security at the expense of the economy of scale and cost eectiveness of the
cloud (i.e., at the expense of resource sharing and deduplication techniques), or they meet the latter objectives at the expense of security (e.g., the customer is required to fully
trust the provider). In this paper, we shed light on this problem, and we analyze the challenges in reconciling security and functional requirements in existing multi-tenant clouds. We also explore the solution space to eectively enhance the current security
oerings of existing cloud storage services. As far as we are aware, this is the rst contribution which comprehensively explores possible avenues for reconciling the current cloud trends with end-to-end security requirements.
