It’s easy to exchange files, folders, and emails in a private network with the aid of a private cloud (PriCld). However, the most common attack with this sort of system is the guessing of the password. The unencrypted connection makes it potential for a man-in-the-middle attack (MaMiAtk) to occur at times. Scanners used to discover vulnerabilities in the system and exploiting them are also a major issue. Therefore, a system that can withstand assaults such as MaMiAtk, Denial of Service Attack (DoS attack), and password guessing is required. In the presented study, a log-based analysis approach has been recommended to guard the system against assaults such as DoS attack, password guessing, and automated scanners. We also use encrypted channels to prevent attacks such as MaMiAtk.
