A Virtualization Assurance Language for Isolation and Deployment

Cloud computing and virtualized infrastructures are often accompanied by complex configurations and topologies. Dynamic scaling, rapid virtual machine deployment, and open multi-tenant architectures create an environment, in which local mis-configuration can create subtle security risks for the entire infrastructure. This situation calls for automated deployment as well as analysis mechanisms, which in turn require a cloud assurance policy language to express security goals for such environments. Where possible, configuration changes should be statically checked against the policy prior to implementation on the infrastructure.
