Award Description: TC: Medium: Collaborative Research: Towards Self-Protecting Data Centers: A Systematic Approach. We have hired three students to work on this project, one graduate student (Charalmapos Andrianakis) who plans to pursue his Ph.D. and two undergraduate students (Tyler Hollingsworth and Christopher Passarello).
Project Description: To meet the top two requirements for modern data centers, namely business continuity and information security, we are taking a systematic approach that leverages the emerging VM technologies to consolidate four areas of systems security research: redundancy, microscopic intrusion analysis and detection, automatic response, and diversity-driven protection. During this quarter, we focused on (1) An architecture and underlying techniques based on diversified replication towards defensive protection against unknown attacks and (2) Novel cross-layer and cross-VM methods for causal relation logging, event correlation, damage assessment, and forensics.
