Blockchain technologies and their application to secure virtualized infrastructure control
Blockchain is a technology making the shared registry concept from distributed systems a reality for a number of application domains, from the cryptocurrency one to potentially any industrial system requiring decentralized, robust, trusted and automated decision making in a multi-stakeholder situation.
> In this thesis, we aim at providing the community with a vademecum on blockchains, which has for a goal to help the reader to decide WHEN to use blockchain, WHICH blockchain technology to use and HOW to use it. Furthermore, we present the B-VMOA blockchain to secure virtual machine orchestration operations for cloud computing and network functions virtualization systems. We parameterize and validate our model with data collected from a realistic testbed, presenting an empirical study to characterize system performance and identify potential performance bottlenecks. Furthermore, we analyze the structural properties of several DCN topologies with the aim to reduce B-VMOA overhead costs.
