OpenStack Vancouver in Security15 May 2015
Having done some work around OpenStack and Security, and even spoken in a prior summit, I’m always interested to see how many InfoSec sessions get accepted and what the various topics are.
This time around I am really excited, not so much by the quantity, but by the content and direction folks are thinking. Take a look over some of these sessions:
- OpenStack Security the CI/CD Way
- Security enforcement, from image to production
- Securing the Codebase
- Detecting attacks in the cloud
- Lockdown: Building the worlds most secure OpenStack Cloud
- Security through community
The first two address, or begin to anyways, what happens to security as one moves to an agile / devops / deploy to production all the time style world. The next one addresses hardening and security OpenStack at the source code level.
Following that, a session addressing detection, which has long needed some vision. Finally, the last two by Rob Clark look like they’ll drive home the points made in the others.
There are plenty more security related sessions at this summit as well.
