Characterizing hypervisor vulnerabilities in cloud computing servers

  title={Characterizing hypervisor vulnerabilities in cloud computing servers},
  author={Diego Perez-Botero and Jakub Szefer and Ruby B. Lee},
The rise of the Cloud Computing paradigm has led to security concerns, taking into account that resources are shared and mediated by a Hypervisor which may be targeted by rogue guest VMs and remote attackers. In order to better define the threats to which a cloud server's Hypervisor is exposed, we conducted a thorough analysis of the codebase of two popular open-source Hypervisors, Xen and KVM, followed by an extensive study of the vulnerability reports associated with them. Based on our… CONTINUE READING
