Abstract

The security provided by virtualization and the versatility and the undemanding nature of containers makes them viable candidates for achieving a one-to-one client-server architecture and the associated security benefits. Our team's goal for this Major-Qualifying Project is to host WPI's InstructAssist class management software using this model. Thus, each user session will be have its own instance of the web server in a container, preventing denial of service attacks by attacking a single point of failure and data theft attacks by employing a Query Restrictor.
