Abstract

This research has been carried out to investigate and propose a method for securing an virtualised environment and to ultimately decide whether virtualisation is the most secure way to provide shared applications and resources. Virtualisation is a very popular mature technology which was first introduced in the sixties by IBM. Lately with the rise of cloud computing people are deploying virtualised environments at a large scale. But a question still surrounds whether these environments based on virtualisation are secure. From researching this topic i have evidence to believe, virtualisation is a secure technology but there are certain areas which still have their vulnerabilities but with the environment and concept proposed it is believed that the security of a virtualised environment can be improved and maintained through intelligent environment design, monitoring and analysis.
