National Research Tomsk State University, Tomsk, Russia
Abstract: Today cloud technologies are widely used in both the public and corporate sectors and in the private sector. The focus of this article is placed on the use of “clouds” to solve personally oriented problems. The use of this technology implies the emergence of trust between the user and the provider. The authors believe that the user’s and provider’s trust models are not identical to each othe,r and at this stage of the study they attempt to identify the provider’s trust model based on analysis of user agreements and privacy policies posted on the web sites of leading cloud storage providers.
Keywords: cloud technologies, public clouds, provider, user, trust.
