Abstract : Cloud computing is a infrastricure that enable business oppurnities to the companies to put the resources over the internet and provide access to the end users based on “use as pay basis” model. The modern business is already in the stage of shifting on the cloud to take the technology benefit of the cloud resources. The technology is maturing now and many cloud service providers are giving the services to the scalable infrastructure by enabling “pay as you go model” that fullfill the computing need and requirements of the end user & business companies. The focus of the cloud security reseacrh is the protection of end user who are using the cloud services connected over the internet from the attacks that use any propagation models such as external, insider and malicious users. Cloud infrastructure is established and enabling the technological benefits to the usres, however little attention is given to the cloud security to defend against the attackers to launch attacks using the cloud services, For example, if user is accessing the cloud services as an VM Instance and malicous user may take the control by hijacking the session between the end user and cloud infrastructure. This paper discuss the Botnet threats in cloud based infrastructure and a review on current detection techniques put in place to defend against such threats. The Botnet is major threats in internet eco-system that include cloud based sevices, IoTs, Deep Networks. The end users connected to the internet or cloud based services are more prone to botnet threats as they are less tech-savy persons. The state-of-art models for botnet detection in cloud enviornment is presented in this paper. In the end, an architectural view of a models of botnet threat detection based on the outbound DNS traffic monitoring is presented that incorporate the novel light weight honeypot application in the cloud infrastructure.
