Investigation of Virtual Network Isolation security in Cloud computing : data leakage issues
MetadataShow full item record
Software Defined Networking (SDN) or Virtual Networks (VNs) are required for cloud tenants to leverage demands. However, multi-tenancy can be compromised without proper isolation. Much research has been conducted into VN Isolation; many researchers are not tackling security aspects or checking if their isolation evaluation is complete. Therefore, data leakage is a major security worry in the cloud in general. This paper uses an OpenStack VN and OpenStack Tenant Network to test multi-tenancy features. We aim to evaluate the relationship between isolation methods used in cloud VN and the amount of data being leaked through using penetration tests. These tests will be used to identify the vulnerabilities causing cloud VN data leakage and to investigate how the vulnerabilities, and the leaked data, can compromise the tenant Virtual Networks.
