Abstract

We propose security architecture based on virtual machine monitor to efficiently deal with attacks on virtual machines. We will show that our model is capable of detecting suspicious processes running in the virtual machine, can detect and prevent different types of attacks including zero day attacks by monitoring the virtual machine traffic and the processes that are generating or receiving the traffic. The architecture also makes use of sharing information about the suspicious behaviour among multiple Intrusion detection systems deployed in different virtual machine monitors. We describe the implementation of the proposed architecture and present a detailed analysis of how our architecture can be used to detect zero day attacks.
