With the evolution in cloud technologies, users are becoming acquainted with seamless service provision. Nevertheless, clouds are not a user centric technology, and users become completely dependent on service providers.

We present such an architecture for user-centric clouds, which relies on self-managed clouds based on doctrine and on identity management concepts.
