Abstract—As a new software paradigm, cloud computing provides services dynamically according to user requirements. However, it is difficult to control personal privacy information because of the opening, virtualization, multi-tenancy and service outsourcing characters. Therefore, how to protect user privacy information has become a research focus. In this paper, we propose requirement-oriented privacy protection theory analysis architecture and implementation platform. Firstly, the theory analysis architecture is depicted as layers, and we analyze the function and key technologies of every layer. Secondly, we address the privacy property description method with ontology and description logic, and then analyze the theory modules of privacy items conflict checking layer, privacy policy negotiation layer and privacy agreement forensics layer. Thirdly, according to theory architecture, we design the implementation platform of requirement-oriented privacy protection, and discuss the function and workflow. In the end, we conclude and point out the future work.
