Abstract

Cloud infrastructures play an increasingly important role for telecom operators, because they enable internal consolidation of resources with the corresponding savings in hardware and management costs. However, this same consolidation exposes core services of the infrastructure to very disruptive attacks. This is indeed the case with monitoring, which needs to be dependable and secure to ensure proper operation of large datacenters and cloud infrastructures. We argue that currently existing centralized monitoring approaches (e.g., relying on a single solution provider, using single point of failure components) represent a huge risk, because a single vulnerability may compromise the entire monitoring infrastructure. © 2012 IEEE.
