Multi-cloud applications are becoming a universal way for organizations to build and deploy systems. Multi-cloud systems are deployed across several different service providers, whether this is due to company mergers, budget concerns, or services provided with each provider. With the growing concerns of potential cyber attacks, security of multi-cloud is an important subject, especially within the communications between systems through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This thesis presents an in depth analysis of multi-cloud, looking at APIs and security, creates a mock architecture for a multi-cloud system, and executes a cyber attack on this architecture to demonstrate the catastrophic effects that could come of these systems if left unprotected. Finally, some solutions for security are discussed as well as the potential plan for more testing of cyber attacks in this realm
