“Secure” cloud computing
• Hey, you, get off of my cloud: Exploring
information leakage in third-party
compute clouds (2009)
• HomeAlone: Co-Residency Detection in
the Cloud via Side-Channel Analysis (2011)
• Cross-VM Side Channels and Their Use to
Extract Private Keys (2012)
Attack vectors
• Side channels, of course! :)
• Statistics FTW
– Latency
– Power, RF
– Cache
• Other vectors?
• Other adversary models?
• Don’t use cloud computing :)
• Run on “bare iron” when you use clouds
• Run the same attack to verify that no one
is “co-resident”
• Data-only, i.e. remote disk but not CPU…?
