OpenStack Hardening Security for Open Source Cloud Platform

Six months ago at the OpenStack Summit in San Diego, OSSG members Bryan Payne, who works for Nebula, and Robert Clarke, cloud security architect at HP, detailed what they saw as points of concern in OpenStack. At a session in the Portland OpenStack Summit on Thursday, Payne and Clarke were back, updating the community on the progress that has been made.

For one, the OSSG is more organized and operational than it was six months ago. The group now has about 30 members. It has set up a page on the Landscape tracking system to serve as a portal for information about the group’s activities. The OSSG hosts weekly meetings on Internet Relay Chat (IRC), every Thursday at 1 p.m. ET, and posts all of the meeting minutes online.
