Abstract

With the explosive growth of cloud computing, virtualization technology has become more and more mature. However, it also increases the complexity of the network topology and causes many new important issues. One of the important issues is the security problem. It is hard to directly monitor the network traffic between Virtual Machines (VMs) through the external network devices, which make VMs more vulnerable in virtual environments. This research focuses on how to efficiently and rapidly protect VMs from malicious attacks without consuming its resources. We combine virtualization platform with the concept of Defense in Depth based on Software Defined Network (SDN), and implement a real-time detection and defense system for DDoS attacks. Moreover, we propose an enhanced entropy-based DDoS detection method to improve its detection accuracy, and we deploy it in SDN architecture.
