What is difference between the two verbs in the following sentence: "affected" vs. "impacted"?
Then, we classify both types of issues according to two different angles: the affected Cloud architectural layer and the impacted security property (in terms of conﬁdentiality, integrity, availability).

Affected means some change in some way - but it could be good, bad or irrelevant.
Impacted is a bit like saying damaged; a definite negative effect.
