Title: SECURE PUBLIC CLOUD
Abstract:
A method, system, computer-readable media, and apparatus for ensuring a secure cloud environment is provided, where public cloud services providers can remove their code from the Trusted Computing Base (TCB) of their cloud services consumers. The method for ensuring a secure cloud environment keeps the Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM), devices, firmware and the physical adversary (where a bad administrator/technician attempts to directly access the cloud host hardware) outside of a consumer's Virtual Machine (VM) TCB. Only the consumer that owns this secure VM can modify the VM or access contents of the VM (as determined by the consumer).
