Moving Target Defense (MTD) is a quite effective solution for alleviating the impact of attacks from malicious sources or attackers taken from biological/military environments. It works as a proactive defense approach aiming at enhancing the target system security by periodically changing its configuration to reduce the exposure to vulnerabilities and opportunities for attack. Several MTD approaches have been studied in the literature, and one of the simplest and most effective is migrating the service among different nodes of a distributed computing system.
