A security breach may result in unintended information or data leakage. In virtualized environments, this aspect is especially important because security issues that are currently unknown could exist, where the same set of data can be accessed by multiple paths. This means multiple authentication and authorization methods exist into that data. Specific management tools can be targets of attacks, since some security risks are easier to target than others. Some of these security risks include authentication issues, roles and permissions as well as access restrictions. This paper will discuss the security risks during management and deployment including proposed solutions, as well as some of the solutions to mitigate the security risks of multifarious authentication and authorization in a virtualized environment.
