The good folks at VMware Labs have issued their Spring 2012 Request for Proposals on Security for Virtualized and Cloud Platforms.
Our research interests in the field of security are broad, including but not limited to the following topics: Homomorphic encryption systems and their applications in cloud environments, security isolation in mobile hypervisors, covert channels in hypervisors, multi-level security isolation guarantees with hypervisors, security implications of GPU virtualization, virtual machine introspection, anomaly detection in virtual desktop environments, leveraging virtualization to improve intrusion detection, and secure cloud computation on untrusted platforms.
Abstracts are due March 16, 2012. Winners will receive initial funding up to $150,000, so get on it! Read the Full Story.
