Virtual machine introspection (VMI) is a critical functionality for cloud management because of the capability of security monitoring. Recently, a concept of writable VMI was proposed to update the state of guest OS from out-of-VM, which is suitable for an automated cloud management due to the feature of high automation. However, current solution of writable VMI lacks practicability because it has high overhead, fails to monitor disk data, and requires the guest OSes between monitoring VM and… CONTINUE READING
