Secure live virtual machine migration through runtime monitors


In this paper, we propose a new model for live migration of virtual machines (VMs) in a secure environment. The live migration of a VM is the process of moving the VM from one physical host to another without interrupting any of the VM running services. We review the stages of the live migration process and identify the threats to it. Also, we propose our migration model that fulfills the most security requirements for secure live VM migration process.
