Strong protection and isolation must be provided between the host and the tenants, as well as between different tenants. Unfortunately, traditional OS architecture and mechanisms are not adequate to provide strong ASHP protection. In this paper, we first make the case for a new OS architecture based on the virtual OS technology. We then present three protection mechanisms we have deve...
