Cloud computing has accomplished success by providing services whenever required and its cost is according to the use of service. Denial of service attacks are a critical threat to the internet. These attacks mainly lead to the improper functioning and degrading of quality of service. This shows more effect on online services and web applications. These attacks may cause failure for several services and it directly effects the service cost. To avoid the extra service cost caused by these attacks, care should be taken to identify these attacks as early as possible. In this paper a framework is proposed which is called “Cloud Information Accountability (CIA)”. The main component of the CIA framework is logger component. Lightweight maintenance and strong accountability are the characteristics of CIA framework.
