	att_abstract={{In an Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud, tenants rely on the cloud provider to provide “value-added” services such as data security and reliability. However, this provider- controlled service model is less flexible and cannot be cus- tomized to meet individual tenants’ needs. In this paper, we present LegoBox, a novel middle-box service platform that allows each tenant to deploy tenant-specific security and reliability services – in virtualized middle-boxes – for their cloud data. With such middle-boxes, LegoBox divides the responsibilities of service creation between tenants and the provider by allowing tenants to customize their own cloud data polices and the provider to offer corresponding infrastructural support. In developing LegoBox, we address key challenges including network splicing, platform efficiency and semantic gap. We implement a LegoBox prototype on top of Open- Stack and demonstrate three tenant-defined security/reliability middle-box services, with low performance overhead (< 10%)}},
