Executive Summary

The cloud's infrastructure will be the next frontier for improving information security. Verifying security at the bottom-most infrastructure layers of the cloud is essential to building secure conditions higher up the technology and services stack. After all, how can an organization claim to control risks and provide evidence of cloud security when there's almost no visibility into the underlying cloud infrastructure or what's actually happening within that infrastructure? IT companies and cloud service providers will soon be able to measure and monitor secure conditions within the cloud's physical and virtual machines. Today, verifying secure conditions and operating states within the cloud's virtualization and hardware layers is an extremely impractical process.
