With serious situation of data leakage in many enterprises, sensitive dataflow protection based on Trusted Virtual Domains (TVD) has been gradually paid much attention to. Remote attestation among two or more entities across trusted virtual domains is an important means to ensure sensitive dataflow. According to behavior compliance, this paper proposes a behavior-based attestation of policy enforcement for distributed services in trusted virtual machine, which is adapted to trusted virtual domain. In our attestation, the unified behavior of the policy model is attested rather than that of any individual security policy. The advantage of this approach is that it is not tied to any specific type of security policy, and it addresses the verification when security policies in two individual virtual domains are inconsistent. Besides, the approach easily extends remote attestation to others’ behavior.
