Although major advances have been made in protection of cloud platforms against malicious attacks, little has been done regarding the protection of these platforms against insider threats.

OpenStack is a popular cloud platform that relies on Keystone, its identity management component, for controlling access to its resources.

Insider threats have become a major cause for concern since legitimate, though malicious, users might have access, in case of theft, to a large amount of information.

For that, we have identified and analysed several insider threats scenarios in the context of the OpenStack cloud platform, and have developed a prototype that was used for experimenting and evaluating the impact of these scenarios upon the self-adaptive authorisation system for the cloud platforms.
