In Internet environment, the information resource could be modified, divided and integrated while transmitting. This would result in that origins of different sections within an information resource are different. Users cannot trace the path of propagation of the information resource, so they are unable to compute its reliability. Besides, the DAC (Discretionary Access Control) model is generally adopted in information system. In these systems, user can create a duplication of the confidential document. Then, he/she can authorize others to access the duplication. Consequently, the security attributes of information resource may be modified, which may lead to inadvertently disclosure. The concept of "Information Resource View" is proposed to resolve these problems mentioned above which uses "File View" as reference. Cloud computing has been a new commercial application in recent years. It is the typical information system in Internet environment. This paper discusses the technologies and services in cloud computing. Then, considering the characteristics in cloud computing platform, this paper discusses the hierarchy of cloud computing service. Finally, this paper proposes a multi-layers mapping mechanism of information resource view in cloud computing environment. This mechanism could improve the feasibility and security in cloud computing environment.
