With recent advances in virtual computing and the revelation that compute-intensive tasks run well on system virtual machines (VMs), the ability to develop, deploy, and manage distributed systems has been ameliorated. This paper explores the design space of VM-based sandboxes where the following techniques that facilitate the deployment of secure nodes in wide-area overlays of virtual workstations (WOWs) are employed: DHCP-based virtual IP address allocation, self-configuring virtual networks supporting peer-to-peer NAT traversal, stacked file systems, and IPsec-based host authentication and end-to-end encryption of communication channels. Experiments with implementations of single-image VM sandboxes, which incorporate the above features and are easily deployable on hosted I/O VMMs, show execution time overheads of 10.6% or less for a batch- oriented CPU-intensive benchmark.
