Rogue Virtual Machine Identification in DaISy Clouds

Running time: 2012-2013
Funding agency: EPSRC/MOD
Project website:


The project aims at developing a novel framework and associated methods for security monitoring of the behaviour of virtual machines in cloud environments in order to effectively identify rogue machine behaviour and cross-virtual machine attacks. The project borrows ideas from successful frameworks for monitoring and detecting fraudulent and suspicious credit card usage and applies them, as well as extends them, to monitoring virtual machines. The project is based on using the IC-Cloud as a test bed for evaluating the proposed framework.
