Virtualized cloud environments have emerged as a necessity within modern unified ICT infrastructures and have established themselves as a reliable backbone for numerous always-on services. `Live' intra-cloud virtual-machine (VM) migration is a widely used technique for efficient resource management employed within modern cloud infrastructures. Despite the benefits of such functionality, there are still several security issues which have not yet been thoroughly assessed and quantified. We investigate the impact of live virtual-machine migration on state-of-the-art anomaly detection (AD) techniques (namely PCA and K-means), by evaluating live migration under various attack types and intensities. We find that the performance for both detectors degrades as shown by their Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) curves when intra-cloud live migration is initiated while VMs are under a netscan (NS) or a denial-of-service (DoS) attack.
