Cloud computing provides well-known economic and technical advantages. However, the absence of knowledge on the privacy capabilities of service providers remains as one of the barriers for the adoption of cloud services. In this paper we describe a mechanism for the quantitative assessment of the privacy practices of different cloud service providers, so that their potential clients can compare among them and choose the one that better meets their requirements. We have validated our contributions in three different scenarios. © 2003-2012 IEEE.
