Cloud computing is an Internet-based model for enabling appropriate on - demand network gateway to the pooled setup of computing resources and related infrastructure on sharing basis. Cloud computing offers four broad categories of services namely, IaaS, PaaS, DSaaS and SaaS. In these cloud services, individuals and organizations usually face security, privacy and trust challenges. Most of the R & D centers and researchers across the world are working towards resolving these security issues and achieving the trust among each other. In this paper we present a framework for unified security design which may help to resolve privacy, trust and security challenges that are faced in cloud- based networks. We also expect that this would help us to understand existing security challenges, while trying to achieve common standards for secure cloud services, design secure cloud transmission protocol, and devise an algorithm in this regard.
