Securing Multi-Tenant Traffic Tunnelled Over Kernel Managed Virtualization Technologies - Sowmini Varadhan, Oracle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Multi-tenant virtualization environments in the Data-center have a number of tunnelling
mechanisms for the Cloud such as VXLAN, Geneve, GUE, PF_RDS, KCM etc
See [http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg347648.html].

Traffic sent on these technologies today is mostly in the clear, but as the scale
of these technologies continues to increase, there is
a growing demand for tighter AAA, Traffic privacy, authentication, and integrity
protection of the tenant Traffic,

The challenge here is "how to encrypt/secure multi-tenant Traffic
that is tunnelled via kernel-managed TCP/UDP sockets". A number
of alternatives have been discussed in the Networking community,
such as a modified TLS and IPsec. This talk will present the pros and cons
of each proposal, and ongoing work in this area, which follows up
on the initial discussion at Netdev 1.1. in Seville, Spain.
