1. Analysis of Protection Options for Virtualized Infrastructures in Infrastructure as a Service Cloud
Published: 5/29/2014
Author: Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is one of the three main cloud service types where the cloud consumer consumes a great variety of resources such as computing (Virtual Machines or VMs), virtual network, storage and utility programs (DBMS). Any larg ...

2. A Methodology for Developing Authentication Assurance Level Taxonomy for Smart Card-based Identity Verification
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7849
Published: 3/5/2014
Author: Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: Smart cards (smart identity tokens) are now being extensively deployed for identity verification for controlling access to Information Technology (IT) resources as well as physical resources. Depending upon the sensitivity of the resources and the ri ...

3. Cryptographic Key Management Issues & Challenges in Cloud Services
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7956
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Ramaswamy Chandramouli, Michaela Iorga, Santosh Chokhani
Abstract: To interact with various services in the cloud and to store the data generated/processed by those services, several security capabilities are required. Based on a core set of features in the three common cloud services - Infrastructure as a Service ( ...

4. Secure Domain Name System (DNS) Deployment Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-81rev2
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Ramaswamy Chandramouli, Scott William Rose
Abstract: The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed computing system that enables access to Internet resources by user-friendly domain names rather than IP addresses, by translating domain names to IP addresses and back. The DNS infrastructure is made up ...

6. Security Assurance Requirements for Hypervisor Deployment Features
Published: 2/24/2013
Author: Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: Virtualized hosts provide abstraction of the hardware resources (i.e., CPU, Memory etc) enabling multiple computing stacks to be run on a single physical machine. The Hypervisor is the core software that enables this virtualization and hence must be ...
