Title: Secure Service Provisioning in a Public Cloud

The public defense of Mudassar Aslam's licentiate thesis in Computer Science will take place at Mälardalen University on October 9, 2012 at 13.15 in room Delta.


Abstract:This thesis addresses the possible security concerns of a cloud user to lease cloud services such as resources in the form of Virtual Machines (VM) from a public Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider. We focus on the security aspects which result in the trust deficit among the cloud stakeholders and hence hinder a security sensitive user to benefit from the opportunities offered by the cloud computing. Our solutions leverage trusted computing techniques for the secure life cycle management of the user VM such as VM launch and migration. We also provide a prototype implementation to prove the implementation feasibility of the proposed trust enabling principles used in the VM launch and migration solutions.
