The infrastructure of IT-sector is heterogeneous and complex. It is difficult for a system administrator to manage these complex systems. This led to complex, unmanageable and insecure systems. A new approach to solve this problem is the IT infrastructure automation. Autonomic computing is the solution to manage complex infrastructure which provides “must have” solutions for the problems above. The increased resource utilization in IT made the enterprises to use the costly physical servers. These physical servers were under-utilized. Virtualization is a technology with efficient and better utilization of resources. Virtualization and autonomic computing are of major importance for the ITsector and could be successfully combined to reach the ideals of the autonomic computing. This paper presents a framework for automating live migration of virtual machines in virtualized environment using autonomic computing. This paper also addresses the types of attacks encountered during live migration of virtual machines.
