Cloud Computing has evolved as a next-generation technology and used as an integrated technology solution or feature in many evolving computing areas. One of the areas is in the field of Smart Cities, employing the internet of things or everything. A smart city is similar to a next-generation city, where services are being provided to users just like in the cloud computing domain. The focus of using such a system is to provide smart services to users or people living around. In previous works, presented by authors around the world, many solutions in different domains related to smart cities are provided, catering to different needs of users but still, there is scope for better access control and authentication mechanisms for accessing various services provided to users over a cloud-based environment. Smart cities are based on the usage of online computing services provided by various ICT/IOT technologies. It also faces many challenges and security threats, just like services in a cloud computing environment. The work presented here will discuss the concepts of the convergence of IOE and cloud computing in smart cities and the challenges faced in future-generation cities employing IOE. Along with this catering to security requirements in smart cities, this work proposes a security framework focussed on providing secure access control and authentication services delivered over the cloud-based system used in smart cities.

Keywords: Access control, Authentication, Cloud computing, Internet of things, Internet of everything, Smart cities, Security.
