"Securing a Public Cloud - Considerations and Countermeasures"

By: Robert Clark

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 you’d expect to see in a private cloud. We’ll 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.
