Widely used cloud security standards define general security measures/controls for securing clouds while not differentiating between the many, well-known implementations that differ with respect to the Service and/or Deployment Model they implement. Users are thus lacking guidance for decision-making and for preparing to ensure end-to-end security. This paper proposes a concept for cloud security standards to really cover and consider virtually all possible Service Models and Deployment Models and, as a result of this, supports differentiating between offerings and improve the support for user organizations for which the standards are also built for.
