In this paper, the authors proposed design of internal traffic checkpoint in security checkpoint model for preventing security threats. The architected security checkpoint model is a system that performs firstly check process on all incoming traffic from outside network. And it identifies almost threats and prevents them for protecting a cloud computing resources. The security checkpoint model consists of three components such as incoming traffic checkpoint, internal traffic checkpoint, and host-based threat checkpoint. The proposed model checks the safety of incoming traffic and binary file, and tracks traffic including threat factors. And it also judges threat traffics on system and storage. In this paper, they focused on structure, inspection procedures and functions of internal traffic checkpoint.
