Cloud Computing is benefiting to both cloud hosts and consumers by providing elastic services as a utility. These services are provided on the basis of Service Level Agreement (SLA). Security and privacy are major issues when dealing with a multi - tenant model of cloud. Consumers are provided computing power in terms of virtual machines (VMs). A consumer can have many VMs at a time. Multiple consumers can get different VMs from the same server. This may lead to cross-VM attacks. This paper introduces a new framework: SAFETY (Security Awareness Framework for Everyone's Task with You), for maintaining security from cross-VM attacks, Data leakage, VM theft, VM escape, Hyper jacking and VM Hopping. Experiments and results show that this framework is suitable and can be used for secure operations at cloud host side.
