Thanks for sharing that best-practice. It was hard to decide who gave the "right answer" regarding the original question - you or Thomas Pornin. I decided to give the tick to you, since your advice explains a practical workaround for the problem Thomas pointed out. For anyone who finds this post: Alexander's advice is to read and store encrypted data in the cloud but having the key to decrypt that data somewhere else. As Alexander stated: That limits the abilities of such a solution in trade for increased security. Thanks Alexander!

Well, the contract is just one side. When those paragraphs come into action, it is already to late, since the attack was successful. Are there any techniques to reduce the mentioned risk in any way?

Are you saying that an encrypted disk (in the VM) would have no effect on what the Host sees? I thought this would make it at least a bit harder for an attacker to steal data.
