Balancing needs of security and scale for an elastic cloud is tricky if not downright impossible. How do you roll out agile, self service Platform as a Service (PaaS) application clouds while in parallel ensuring protection for OpenStack API end points from DDoS attacks, separation of tenant and provider networks, perimeter endpoint security plus satisfy compliance requirements such as encryption in-flight and at rest?
This session will cover security at scale without dependence on existing technologies and tools like 5 tuple and IPTables. Come learn:
- How you can achieve regulatory compliance on per tenant basis
- How separation of tenant and provider networks can be done and simultaneously satisfy both parties security requirements
- How to leverage the use of next generation firewalls for intrusion detection and host quarantine
- How to protect OpenStack API endpoints - for example Nova and Swift - from DDoS attacks that overrun the database
