Continuous Compliance & Enforcement of Location-Based Policies in an OpenStack Cloud

Study after study shows that security is still the biggest barrier to cloud adoption, with compliance and data protection being top concerns for a CISO.    

Enterprises often have a need to enforce policies (based on data sovereignty requirements) such as virtual workloads should only be placed, or migrated, based on location and assurance of hardware platform. 

Some others  want to launch VMs/Apps/Containers on Servers with Boot Integrity – Platform Trust, while some have a need to extend the chain of trust from platform to workload (VM/Container). This session features a customer case study from Visa with technologies from Intel (CIT, TXT and TPM), HPE (Helion OpenStack and Proliant Gen 9 server) and Cloud Raxak (RaxakProtect) that demonstrates end-to-end compliance (boot time to shutdown) using hardware and software attestations.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees can expect to learn how a combination of technologies from vendors like Intel, HPE and Cloud Raxak can solve the problem of enforcing security policies (such as the ability to run/migrate workloads only on trusted VMs) based on hardware and software attestations as well as geo-locations, in an OpenStack cloud environment.  


This is critical for meeting compliance requirements and data sovereignty rules.
