Icehouse, the 9th release of OpenStack, is out! Thanks to the 1200+ contributors. OpenStack Icehouse
OpenStack is a maturing force in the Cloud ecosystem and has significant security related growing-pains. No environment is more challenging for deployment than a public cloud. Our business is to allow people to run code and place files deep within our infrastructure. With customer data touching most systems this can be a dangerous proposition in this talk I will discuss some of architectural hurdles we have had to deal with and the countermeasures we have deployed over and above what youd expect to see in a private cloud. Well walk through a security wish list that would make OpenStack the most secure Cloud platform in the world and discuss how to move in that direction.
