Cloud computing becomes a successful paradigm for data computing and storage. Increasing concerns about data se-curity and privacy in the cloud, however, have emerged. En-suring security and privacy for data management and query processing in the cloud is critical for better and broader uses of the cloud. This tutorial covers some common cloud securi-ty and privacy threats and the relevant research, while focus-ing on the works that protect data confidentiality and query access privacy for sensitive data being stored and queried in the cloud. We provide a comprehensive study of state-of-the-art schemes and techniques for protecting data confi-dentiality and access privacy, which make different tradeoffs in the multidimensional space of security, privacy, function-ality and performance.
