Title: Step-By-Step Approach for Threat Modeling Cloud-Based Services
Summary: This session will discuss a simple approach and provide step-by-step guidance for threat modeling various cloud applications deployed in all service models (SaaS, PaaS and IaaS) using a simple spreadsheet based template. This threat modeling approach is developed as a crosswalk between STRIDE framework and Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)' CCM (Cloud Controls Matrix) keeping in mind the shared responsibility model between cloud providers and cloud consumers as a means to define a structured and repeatable process to identify and mitigate threats against valuable cloud assets.
