AAA in a Cloud-Based Virtual DIME Network Architecture (DNA)
The design of a cloud architecture can be difficult according the business logic complexity which Cloud Service Providers (SPs) want to achieve. This paper describes a possible solution for simplifying the design of cloud-based services exploiting a DIME Network Architecture (DNA). More specifically, exploiting the signaling channel and FCAPS of DIMEs, the authors discuss an approach for the management of SSO authentication, authorization, and accounting in cloud-based services. Evolution has taught one that security, self-protection, and real-time monitoring and control of the environment are essential components of an organism's survival. Cellular organisms have evolved complex mechanisms to ensure their survival and have deployed them using a genetic computing model that supports replication, repair, recombination and reconfiguration.
