Nowadays, virtualization has been widely used in the design of application systems. In this paper, we outline the characteristics of an intrusion tolerance system based on virtualization. The semi-Markov process of discrete time is used to model the system. The security of the system is analyzed and evaluated quantitatively from a number of perspectives such as time and space. Some new indicators are proposed to evaluate the security performance of the intrusion tolerance system more
