Topic of Talk: Securing OpenStack Deployments
About the Talk:
OpenStack is the most popular and stable open source cloud platforms that we have today. However, OpenStack is not built with security in mind. The focus has always been on functional aspects. This makes OpenStack not an out of the box secure solution for enterprise customers. As part of this presentation, different aspects of security (authentication , authorization, auditing, privileged access, security tools, vulnerability management, GDPR etc) w.r.t OpenStack will be discussed. This will help audience understand how secure a community OpenStack deployment is and how they can make it more secure for enterprise use
