Lately, the most efficient solution for an organization and individual of internet based distributed computing platforms is cloud computing. Processing, storage, and data management are just a few of the useful services that end users can get from cloud computing. However, it raises a lot of issues with privacy and security which needs to be resolved. Major component of cloud computing is virtualization technology, which helps to develop complex cloud services based on the externalization and composition of these resources. The primary concern with cloud computing security is virtualization security. The collective measures and methods that ensure the safety of a virtualization environment are referred to as virtualization security. It tackles the security risks that virtualized components encounter, as well as techniques for mitigating or preventing them. In recent days, attacks are mainly aimed either to the virtualization architecture or the infrastructure. We prefer to examine the security holes associated with virtualization in this paper and how concentrating on virtualization security might ultimately result in safeguarding cloud computing platform. Through this paper we tend to highlight the recent
progress and an overview of the existing works performed on various dimensions of the cloud security. We conclude our paper by making several recommendations with respect to the attack vector for supporting
cloud protection with a mathematical LP model.
