Software for advanced cloud-computing system scanning

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed software, called HyperSentry,that offers new and enhanced security for cloud computing. It is the activity of using computer technology, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand.

New software looks for malware and viruses in software components that actually create the virtual workspace that separates different systems hypervisors.The current methods of checking for malware in cloud-based system encounter problems because the software alerts the malware that a check is coming. The novelty of HyperSentryis possibility to check for malware without alerting malware that a scan is underway because the checks can be performed while the hypervisor is operating. The software looks in the hypervisor program memory and at the registers inside the CPUs.Once HyperSentry detects a threat, the administrator of the cloud can take steps to eliminate the threat and limit the spread of the threat.
