Abstract: Now the security concern has become a huge impediment to the development of cloud computing.Due to the specific characteristics such as data and service outsourcing,virtualization,multi-tenant and cross domain sharing,the cloud computing environment faces more complicated threats compared with traditional IT environment,and the security audit technology also needs higher demands.Firstly,this paper analyzed the main challenges that cloud security audit confronts with,proposed a security audit technology framework in cloud environment which provides all-around examination from four dimensions such as user dimension,business dimension,data dimension,infrastructure dimension.Then according to different dimensions,the studies were reviewed from three aspects including log audit,storage audit and configuration audit,in order to provide useful reference to the development research of security audit for cloud computing in our country.

Key words: Cloud computing,Security audit,Log audit,Storage audit,Configuration audit
