Enabling Security for OpenStack Guests - TPM Support for VMs at the Edge

OpenStack's Virtualized Guests require the same security features as
their physical counterparts. Intel's Trusted Execution Technology (TXT)
along with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) provides a security anchor
for physical hosts by taking secure measurements of software and platform
components, securing boot and interface keys, as well as securing passwords.
In this session, we discuss and demo a secure approach at leveraging the
software-based virtual TPM, in an OpenStack environment, to provide the same
security capabilities to the much more dynamic cloud environment.
