Abstract

Live migration was introduced to support many features of cloud computing like workload balancing, fault tolerance, online system maintenance, consolidation of virtual machine, etc. Live Migration is transferring of VM from source host machine to destination host machine while being powered on. Cloud has various key points which can be exploited by attackers. As cloud is prone to security attacks, it is necessary to ensure secure transfer of VM. This paper discusses the process of live migration, various security attacks possible along with their effects and some solution to maintain security in live migration.
