From the purpose and scope in the current draft:
This publication explains selected security challenges involving Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing technologies and geolocation. It then describes a proof of concept implementation that was designed to address those challenges. The publication provides sufficient details about the proof of concept implementation so that organizations can reproduce it if desired. The publication is intended to be a blueprint or template that can be used by the general security community to validate and implement the described proof of concept implementation. ¶ It is important to note that the proof of concept implementation presented in this publication is only one possible way to solve the security challenges. It is not intended to preclude the use of other products, services, techniques, etc. that can also solve the problem adequately, nor is it intended to preclude the use of any cloud products or services not specifically mentioned in this publication.
