Cloud Trust Authority
Reduce complexity and increase trust for public cloud service providers and their customers.
The RSA Cloud Trust Authority (CTA) is a set of cloud-based services for identity, information, and infrastructure cloud security as well as compliance reporting designed to facilitate secure interaction among organizations and cloud service providers. Participating public cloud service providers and their customers will only need to integrate with the Cloud Trust Authority to establish a variety of cloud security integrations with each other rather than establish individual point-to-point integrations.
The Cloud Trust Authority will shield both sides from the complexities of their infrastructures and instead enable easy ways to establish trusted cloud security relationships. A beta release of the initial Identity and Compliance offerings will be available in the second half of 2011.

Now, holiday shoppers can do all of that from a smartphone or tablet in a few seconds, but there are some security pitfalls to be aware of.
