Achieving cloud security is not a trivial problem and developing and enforcing good cloud security controls is a fundamental requirement if this is to succeed. The very nature of cloud computing can add additional problem layers for cloud security to an already complex problem area. We discuss why this is such an issue, consider what desirable characteristics should be aimed for and propose a novel means of effectively and efficiently achieving these goals through the use of unikernel based systems. The main thrust of this paper is to discuss the key issues which need to be addressed, noting which of those might be covered by our proposed approach. We discuss how our proposed approach may help better address the key security issues we have identified.
