Security Control Variations Between In-House and Cloud-Based Virtualized Infrastructures

Abstract

Virtualization-related components (such as Hypervisor, Virtual Network and Virtual Machines (VMs)) in a virtualized data center infrastructure need effective security controls. However, the differences in scope of control (among stakeholders) over this component set between in-house and cloud-based virtualized infrastructures introduce variations in security control measures that can be deployed by the respective stakeholders. In this paper, we analyze those variations and their efficiency & security impacts. We also suggest technology enablers that can minimize those impacts and improve the overall security robustness of the basic computing units of a virtualized infrastructure (i.e.,VMs).
