Description

In this dissertation, we have analyzed various security and trustworthy solutions for modern computing systems and proposed a framework that will provide holistic security and trust for the entire lifecycle of a virtualized workload. The framework consists of 3 novel techniques and a set of guidelines. These 3 techniques provide necessary elements for secure and trusted execution environment while the guidelines ensure that the virtualized workload remains in a secure and trusted state throughout its lifecycle. We have successfully implemented and demonstrated that the framework provides security and trust guarantees at the time of launch, any time during the execution, ... continued below

Description

In this dissertation, we have analyzed various security and trustworthy solutions for modern computing systems and proposed a framework that will provide holistic security and trust for the entire lifecycle of a virtualized workload. The framework consists of 3 novel techniques and a set of guidelines. These 3 techniques provide necessary elements for secure and trusted execution environment while the guidelines ensure that the virtualized workload remains in a secure and trusted state throughout its lifecycle. We have successfully implemented and demonstrated that the framework provides security and trust guarantees at the time of launch, any time during the execution, and during an update of the virtualized workload. Given the proliferation of virtualization from cloud servers to embedded systems, techniques presented in this dissertation can be implemented on most computing systems.
