SilverLine: Data and Network Isolation for Cloud Services
Source: Georgia Tech
Although cloud computing service providers offer opportunities for improving the administration, reliability, and maintenance of hosted services, they also concentrate network resources and data in a small number of cloud service providers. The concentration of data and resources introduces various associated risks, including sharing the underlying infrastructure with unknown (and untrusted) tenants and relying on the availability and security of the underlying infrastructure itself. These security risks represent some of the most significant barriers to the adoption of cloud-based services.
