OpenStack security brief
Posted on 29 March 2013.
This video from Shmoocon 2013 is a break down of security concerns relating to OpenStack cloud software.

OpenStack is an open source IaaS solution compatible with Amazon EC2 / S3 and Google's GCE. The purpose of the talk is to introduce and demonstrate the working mechanics of cloud security mechanisms, or lack thereof.

The presentation will follow the flow of introducing the primary software and deployment model as it relates to security needs. Specific limitations of the technology will be discussed. The next phase will be the discussion of specific protocols in use, how to tap, fuzz, or otherwise work with them.

The presenter will call out known issues that are still as of yet unaddressable. He'll present statistics on where past vulnerabilities have been found and reported. Finally he'll discuss the future plans of OpenStack's open source development community and what impact that will have on future security analysis.



About the presenter: Matt Joyce is an alumni of the NASA Nebula project, where OpenStack was created. He is an active contributor to the OpenStack project, and is a member of the OpenStack Security Group.
