Monitoring-Based Certification of Cloud Service Security

Krotsiani, M., Spanoudakis, G. & Kloukinas, C. (2015). Monitoring-Based Certification of Cloud Service Security. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 9415, pp. 644-659. doi: 10.1007/978-3-319-26148-5_44


In this paper, we present a novel approach to cloud service security certification. This approach could be used to: (a) define and execute automatically certification models, which can continuously and incrementally acquire and analyse evidence regarding the provision of services on cloud infrastructures through continuous monitoring; (b) use this evidence to assess whether the provision is compliant with required security properties; and (c) generate and manage digital certificates confirming the compliance of services if the acquired evidence supports this. We also present the results of an initial experimental evaluation of our approach based on the MySQL server and RUBiS benchmark.
