  <dc:description>In last years, the security appliance is becoming a more important and critical challenge considering the growing complexity and diversification of cyber-attacks. The current solutions are often too cumbersome to be run in virtual services and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Therefore, it is neces- sary to evolve to a more cooperative models, which collect security-related data from a large set of heterogeneous sources for centralized analysis and correlation.

In this paper, we outline a flexible abstraction layer for access to secu- rity context. It is conceived to program and gather data from lightweight inspection and enforcement hooks deployed in cloud applications and IoT devices. We provide a description of its implementation, by reviewing the main software components and their role.

Finally, we test this abstraction layer with a performance evaluation of a Proof of Concept (PoC) implementation with the aim to evaluate the effectiveness to collect data / logs from virtual services and IoT to enable a centralized security analysis.</dc:description>
