SecAgreement: Advancing Security Risk Calculations in Cloud Services (M. Hale & R. Gamble) was presented in the Security and Privacy Engineering track at IEEE SERVICES 2012. This work focused on the question “How can cloud service providers SLAs be augmented meet the security needs of organizational consumers?” Our approach extends WS-Agreement for SLA creation, negotiation, and formation to allow for security risk to be understood as part of service level objectives and service description terms.  The result is SecAgreement that embeds the security requirements expectations. We presented a matchmaking algorithm capable of matching SLA requests against SLA offers within the SecAgreement provided by cloud services to choose the least risk cloud to fulfill the request.
