Many publications have dealt with various types of security requirements in cloud computing but not all types have been explored in sufficient depth. It is also hard to understand which types of requirements have been under-researched and which are most investigated. This paper's goal is to provide a comprehensive and structured overview of cloud computing security requirements and solutions. We carried out a systematic review and identified security requirements from previous publications that we classified in nine sub-areas: Access Control, Attack/Harm Detection, Non-repudiation, Integrity, Security Auditing, Physical Protection, Privacy, Recovery, and Prosecution. We found that (i) the least researched sub-areas are non-repudiation, physical protection, recovery and prosecution, and that (ii) access control, integrity and auditability are the most researched sub-areas.
