Virtualization Security: Concerns and Solutions

Virtualization Security: Concerns and Solutions

Paper details:
This is not a regular research paper, it’s a survey paper. Regular research papers are a description of your own research. A survey paper is a service to the scientific community. You are doing their research for them. Instead of reading 20+ papers to understand what a scientific topic is about, they just need to read your paper. As a survey, it needs to give a background introduction, clearly describe the surveyed techniques, and more important, provide your own opinion. Diagrams, charts, and tables will be helpful. Double space, APA.
