Title: SECURE SERVICE HOSTED IN A VIRTUAL SECURITY ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
An execution environment has a deployed virtual machine image. The virtual machine image provides a service that is identified by a role. The execution environment generates a measurement of the virtual machine image and provides it to a key service to request role keys that enable operation of the virtual machine image in the execution environment. The key service determines whether the virtual machine image is mapped to the role and, if so, returns the role keys to the requesting execution environment.
