Large distributed systems such as clouds are increasingly becoming targets of attacks. Virtualization can be leveraged to increase the security of such systems by protecting the integrity of guest components. This paper discusses the integrity protection problem in the clouds and sketches a novel architecture, Transparent Cloud Protection System (TCPS) for increased security of cloud resources. TCPS can be tailored to different cloud flavors to monitor the integrity of guests and infrastructure components while remaining transparent to virtual machines. © 2010 ACM.
