The paper presented a cloud security insurance framework for estimating coverage for different cloud services. For the cloud security insurance, the question of differential security coverage is relevant as the cost of deploying special protection, detection and response tools varies and requires efficient coverage estimation. Accordingly, this work uses an intelligent search and optimization method for determining a combination of tools (from a knowledgebase of security products–considering their features, effectiveness and consumer/vulnerability reports in mitigating risks) in providing multi-level defense for cloud services.
