Towards a Distributed, Self-organising Approach to Malware Detection in Cloud Computing

Abstract : Cloud computing is an increasingly popular platform for both industry and consumers. The cloud presents a number of unique security issues, such as a high level of distribution and system homogeneity, which require special consideration. In this paper we introduce a resilience architecture consisting of a collection of self-organising resilience managers distributed within the infrastructure of a cloud. More specifically we illustrate the applicability of our proposed architecture under the scenario of malware detection. We describe our multi-layered solution at the hypervisor level of the cloud nodes and consider how malware detection can be distributed to each node.
