Based on the CSA Enterprise Architecture Reference Guide and the CSA Security Guidance v4.

Cloud security is cybersecurity. As cloud adoption grows, it has also become the basis for new ways of organizing compute, such as containerization and DevOps, which are inseparable from the cloud.

In this blog, we’ll provide an overview of cloud security architecture and a model your enterprise can use. If you want to take a step back and understand how cloud differs from on-premises security, read this blog first.

Before You Get Started

Since different cloud projects, even on a single provider, will likely leverage entirely different sets of configurations and technologies, each project should be evaluated on its own merits. The key is to identify requirements, design the architecture, and then identify the gaps based on the capabilities of the underlying cloud platform. That’s why you need to know the cloud provider and architecture before you start translating security requirements into controls. This blog will provide you with an overview of a reference architecture you can use when operating in the cloud.

Cloud Security Reference Architecture

*The CSA Enterprise Architecture was adopted by the National Institute of Standards and Technologies in NIST SP 500-299 and NIST SP 500-292.

Cloud security models are tools to help guide security decisions. Reference architectures are a type of model that can be used as a template for implementing cloud security. The CSA Enterprise Architecture is a comprehensive approach for the architecture of a secure, identity-aware cloud infrastructure. It leverages four industry standard architecture models:
