In the third and final part of this three-part series on building a hybrid cloud application, examine governance and security for cloud computing. Build on the example of the HybridCloud application from Part 2 by examining how to add access control policies to its use of Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS). Look in detail at how the HybridCloud application authenticates itself to cloud services and how to add a log audit trail to Amazon's S3 (Simple Storage Service). Lastly, see how Google Apps uses OAuth and how cloud services require built-in testing to avoid inadvertent Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks.
