Security concerns remain a strong deterrent to enterprise acceptance of the cloud, especially with recent events illustrating the vulnerability of data in the cloud. As OpenStack-based clouds have been focused on providing the environment needed for elastic, on-demand multi-tenant applications, how security, isolation and policies are enforced has largely been unclear. This talk will explore the changing nature of the network as it transitions to new models more suited to the cloud with SDN, NFV and Virtual Network Infrastructure, and the inter-relationship between networking, and security and policy enforcement. It will explore why and how security and policy enforcement should be integrated into the networking design of OpenStack cloud environments.
