Scope

This work develops secure monitoring mechanisms (Virtual Machine Introspection) for virtual machines in GENI slices, and also brings University of Alaska resources into GENI to help develop working implementations of federation and provide a diverse environment for evaluating VMI and other GENI software or experiments. Deployment begins with the Advanced System Security Education Research and Training (ASSERT) Lab, with software based on their previous work with Xen virtual monitoring. The UA CIO is directly involved in the project, and will provide realistic requirements and support for GENI deployments in environments that range from supercomputer centers to geographically isolated communities operating at the extremes of the network’s thin edge.
