Abstract : Some companies are willing to execute their business processes (BP) in the cloud for enjoying its benefits. However, they are also reluctant because of the new security risks that using cloud resources introduces. Security risk includes many dimensions , but this work focus on preserving the privacy of the logic of a BP deployed in a multi-cloud context by preventing a coalition of malicious clouds to reconstruct important information from this logic. More precisely, the paper presents a BP logic privacy metric directly supporting the evaluation of the risk a company has its logic hacked in a particular multi-cloud configuration Index terms— BP modelling, BP deployment in the cloud, Security risk, BP logic privacy
