As Cloud services become more commonplace, recent works have uncovered vulnerabilities unique to such systems. Specifically, the paradigm promotes a risk of information leakage across virtual machine isolation via side-channels. Unlike conventional computing, the infrastructure supporting a Cloud environment allows mutually distrusting clients simultaneous access to the underlying hardware, a seldom met requirement for a side-channel attack. This thesis investigates the current state of side… CONTINUE READING
