Towards Full Network Virtualization in Horizontal IaaS Federation: Security Issues

Horizontal IaaS federation exploits datacenter for federation of IaaS provider by supplying virtual nodes (e.g. virtual machines, virtual switches, and virtual routers) and virtual links. Today's datacenters for cloud computing do not supply full network virtualization in terms of user-level network management and user-agreed network topology. The datacenters lack the basic security services required for the collocation of tenants' virtual networks. The network virtualization research projects from academia and industry support full network virtualization but lack the basic security services required for the collocation of tenants' virtual networks.
