Serverless Computing: A Security Perspective

  title={Serverless Computing: A Security Perspective},
  author={Eduard Marin and Diego Perino and Roberto Di Pietro},
Serverless Computing is a virtualisation-related paradigm that promises to simplify application management and to solve one of the last architectural challenges in the field: scale down. The implied cost reduction, coupled with a simplified management of underlying applications, are expected to further push the adoption of virtualisation-based solutions, including cloud-computing. However, in this quest for efficiency, security is not ranked among the top priorities, also because of the… Expand
