Emerging fine-grained cloud resource billing creates incentives to review the software execution footprint in virtual environments. Operators can use novel virtual execution environments with ever lower overhead: from virtual machines to containers, to unikernels and serverless functions. However, the execution footprint of security mechanisms in virtualized deployments has either remained the same or even increased. In this demo, we present a novel key provisioning mechanism for cloud networks
