In this research paper, PARC takes an academic approach towards busting taboos such as security, availability and third party data control cited when it comes to adopting Cloud services. Given advances in trusted computing and encryption, the paper shows how adopting an approach of "protecting data from within" can hold advantages and touches on techniques such as Information-centric Security and Remote Server Attestation. The paper also describes Privacy Enhanced Business Intelligence techniques that can reinforce and complement the business intelligence benefits of moving to the Cloud.
