    Secure Sharing of an ICT Infrastructure through Vinci

    Export to Mendeley

    Virtual Interacting Network CommunIty (Vinci) is a software architecture that exploits virtualization to share in a secure way an information and communication technology infrastructure among a set of users with distinct security levels and reliability requirements. To this purpose, Vinci decomposes users into communities, each consisting of a set of users, their applications, a set of services and of shared resources. Users with distinct privileges and applications with distinct trust levels belong to distinct communities. Each community is supported by a virtual network, i.e. a structured and highly parallel overlay that interconnects virtual machines (VMs), each built by instantiating one of a predefined set of VM templates. Some VMs of a virtual network run user applications, some protect shared resources, and some others control traffic among communities to discover malware or worms. Further VMs manage the infrastructure resources and configure the VMs at start-up. The adoption of several VM templates enables Vinci to minimize the complexity of each VM and increases the robustness of both the VMs and of the overall infrastructure. Moreover, the security policy that a VM applies depends upon the community a user belongs to. As an example, discretionary access control policies may protect files shared within a community, whereas mandatory policies may rule access to files shared among communities. After describing the overall architecture of Vinci, we present the VM templates and the performance results of a first prototype. 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

    Description

    Title : Secure Sharing of an ICT Infrastructure through Vinci
    Author(s) : Fabrizio Baiardi, Daniele Sgandurra
    Abstract : Virtual Interacting Network CommunIty (Vinci) is a software architecture that exploits virtualization to share in a secure way an information and communication technology infrastructure among a set of users with distinct security levels and reliability requirements. To this purpose, Vinci decomposes users into communities, each consisting of a set of users, their applications, a set of services and of shared resources. Users with distinct privileges and applications with distinct trust levels belong to distinct communities. Each community is supported by a virtual network, i.e. a structured and highly parallel overlay that interconnects virtual machines (VMs), each built by instantiating one of a predefined set of VM templates. Some VMs of a virtual network run user applications, some protect shared resources, and some others control traffic among communities to discover malware or worms. Further VMs manage the infrastructure resources and configure the VMs at start-up. The adoption of several VM templates enables Vinci to minimize the complexity of each VM and increases the robustness of both the VMs and of the overall infrastructure. Moreover, the security policy that a VM applies depends upon the community a user belongs to. As an example, discretionary access control policies may protect files shared within a community, whereas mandatory policies may rule access to files shared among communities. After describing the overall architecture of Vinci, we present the VM templates and the performance results of a first prototype. 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
