Product Description

Product Description

For cloud users and providers alike, security is an everyday concern, yet there are very few books covering cloud security as a main subject. This book will help address this information gap from an Information Technology solution and usage-centric view of cloud infrastructure security. The book highlights the fundamental technology components necessary to build and enable trusted clouds. Here also is an explanation of the security and compliance challenges organizations face as they migrate mission-critical
applications to the cloud, and how trusted clouds, that have their integrity rooted in hardware, can address these challenges.

This book provides:

  •          Use cases and solution reference architectures to
    enable infrastructure integrity and the creation of trusted pools leveraging
    Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT). 
  •          Trusted geo-location management in the cloud,
    enabling workload and data location compliance and boundary control usages in
    the cloud. 
  •          OpenStack-based reference architecture 
    of  tenant-controlled virtual machine and workload protection in the
  •          A reference design to enable secure hybrid clouds
    for a cloud bursting use case, providing infrastructure visibility and control
    to organizations.

“A valuable guide to the next generation of cloud security
and hardware based root of trust. More than an explanation of the what and how,
is the explanation of why. And why you can’t afford to ignore it!” —Vince Lubsey, Vice President, Product Development,
 Virtustream Inc.

" Raghu provides a valuable reference for the new
'inside out' approach, where trust in hardware, software, and privileged users
is never assumed—but instead measured, attested, and limited according to least
privilege principles."   —John Skinner, Vice President,
HyTrust Inc.

"Traditional parameter based defenses are in sufficient
in the cloud. Raghu's book addresses this problem head-on by highlighting

The book I read to research this post was Building the Infrastructure For Cloud Security by Raghuram Yeluri et al which is an excellent book which I downloaded for free from kindle. This book is about the infrastructure and security that must be provided by Cloud Computing Providers. They are companies that rent out space on their servers to other companies or individuals and often will either provide it free or for a few dollars per month especially with small companies. Some big companies may pay a lot more and may even require an entire server or several servers. These data centers will typically cost around $200 million and have thousands or even millions of clients most of whom will be small companies. One issue is bandwidth and if one client has a lot of traffic will it affect other clients. One way around this is servicing 2 regions from the same data center so that when one region experiences heavy traffic the other region in another part of the world is relatively light. This only works for the biggest providers. Some cloud providers only work with linux while others give several options. Another issue is if one user uploads a virus or worm it can potentially attack other users at least on the same server. Intel have developed open attestation which as the name suggests is an open source standard program for dividing and protecting different clients. Of course things like anti virus and anti spyware software are even more crucial in this kind of situation. A lot of the security is provided by the Cloud Provider. This makes it more difficult but not impossible for potential criminals to hack companies servers due to the huge amount of financial clout these Cloud Providers have and can spend on security. A lot of businesses are starting to use virtualization like VMware. Read more ›

I know there are books like "War and Peace" but when held up against this work, with it's rapt plot and high intensity dialogue, there is just no comparison. Highly recommended for all ages.
