This paper describes the live migration data protection mechanism. At the beginning of the live migration process, the proposed data protection mechanism verifies whether movement of the application’s data is allowed, based on the content of regulations related to data usage issued by the country and organization. This mechanism performs live migration only when migration is allowed. This mechanism enables the use of appropriate data while protecting privacy during the live migration process. We will describe and evaluate the implementation of the data protection mechanism. As a result, our mechanism is considered that there is no influence on the live migration time.
