TOWARDS IMPROVING VIRTUAL MACHINE SECURITY IN THE CLOUD
Cloud computing is very appealing for its convenient central management, the elasticity of resource provisioning and its economic benefits. Undoubtedly, the non-transparent nature of the Cloud infrastructure introduces significant security concerns. To utilize the Cloud benefits and to facilitate wide-scale Cloud adoption, Cloud security challenges must be addressed. In this thesis, we analyzed a new category of Virtual Machine (VM) migration incurred security problems. We pinpoint that the migration of VM instances from one physical machine to another can weaken or even nullify the ...
