Recently, as the service scale of cloud service is expanded, an anxiety due to concerns on new vulnerabilities and security related incidents and accidents are also increasing. This paper proposes a certification scheme for multiple session management of security sessions which are generated after the user authentication. The proposed session multiplexing scheme enables the independent management of security sessions in the level of virtualization (hypervisor) within the service provider. As a result of performance analysis, providing a strong safety due to session multiplexing and mutual authentication, and the superiority of performance was proven by comparing it with the existing mutual authentication encryption algorithms.
