Presentation: "Cloud Security or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Cloud"

Track: Technologies and Tools / Time: Tuesday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Lille Sal, BORA BORA

Over the last years Cloud Computing has become one of the most hyped concepts in IT. The lure is obvious: increased business agility and reduced cost. However, many are worried about security: loss of control and lack of confidentiality. In fact, according to IDC (2010), security is the main worry for companies considering to "move to the cloud".

In this talk we start by looking at why, i.e. the threat landscape, and then move on to how to secure cloud solutions - today and and in the future.

Todays solutions include good contracts, understanding cloud deployment models, getting programmatic access, and knowing how to build secure applications in the cloud.

In the future better standards and compliance models for the cloud will emerge while at the same time better technical solutions will appear. One such solution is using cryptography; not only to protect data at rest, but also to compute on encrypted data! The latter may seem impossible, but this talk will give a brief glimpse of how this can be done using technology developed at the Alexandra Institute in collaboration with world-leading cryptographers.
