We will present a series of architectures, best practices and technologies that when applied with well-reasoned deployment decisions result in significantly hardened OpenStack deployments.

We will guide the audience through the trade-off’s that must be considered when building a secure infrastructure, identifying those enhancements that provide the biggest leaps forward in security and the best return on investment.

A small sample of the topics we’ll cover:

  • Secure Provisioning Methods

  • Multi-Level Hypervisor Hardening Approaches

  • Containerization and Nested Virtualization for Security Enhancement

  • Multi-Tenant Aware IDS approaches

  • Encryption everywhere with Ephemeral PKI

  • Tenant separation at every level of the stack 

The discussion will culminate with an overview of the security gaps that require more research and development, a call to arms for all those developers, enterprises and adopters who have strong security assurance requirements and who are willing to dedicate effort to enhancing OpenStack security.
