Paper title: Flashlight: A Novel Monitoring Path Identification Schema for Securing Cloud Services > Ruben Trapero Paper abstract: Cloud monitoring is an essential mechanism for helping secure cloud services. Thus, a plethora of monitoring schemas has been proposed in recent years. Particularly, a newly proposed indirect monitoring mechanism outperforms others with the unique merit of addressing scenarios where the information of the monitoring target is not directly accessible. To conduct indirect cloud security monitoring, a key prerequisite is to obtain a special set of monitoring data termed “monitoring path”. However, how to ascertain the monitoring path is still an open issue. The paper proposes a novel monitoring path identification mechanism to address the gap where the information of monitoring targets is inaccessible, analyzing data relations and data attributes.
