In a consolidated virtualized environment, multiple virtual machines (VMs) are hosted atop a shared physical substrate. They share the underlying hardware resources as well as the software virtualization components. Thus, one VM can generate performance interference to another co-resident VM. This work explores the adverse impact of performance interference from a security perspective. We present a new class of attacks, namely the cascade attacks, in which an adversary seeks to generate… CONTINUE READING
