INTRUSION TOLERANCE AS A SERVICE - A SLA-based Solution

Massimiliano Rak, Massimo Ficco

Abstract

Among the incredible number of challenges in Cloud Computing two of them are considered of great relevance: Service Level Agreement management and Security management. In this paper we will try to show how it is possible, using a cloud-oriented API derived from the mOSAIC project, to build up an SLA-oriented cloud application which enables the delivery of security solutions as a service. We will focus on intrusion tolerance solutions, i.e., systems which grant that a system maintain a (limited) availability even when a security attack take place.
