CSC's Ron Knode Leads Session on Digital Trust at Cloud Expo in New York

CSC Session at Cloud Expo

"What prevents an enterprise scale explosion in cloud processing that matches the individual and SMB growth patterns that have already been recorded?," asks CSC's Ron Knode, who will be presenting a session entitled "Into the Cloud with Digital Trust" at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York. "What stops important government and commercial mission-essential applications and services from being confidently migrated to the cloud in a style that captures the biggest possible payoff?"

"For CSC," he says, "the answer lies in restoring visibility into and through the cloud, and delivering a technique that can reclaim transparency even as services are being delivered through cloud processing. That technique includes a capability to reclaim transparency into and through the cloud within a broader set of Orchestration Core services.

"The CloudTrust Protocol (CTP) was created to help make visible the evidence of trustworthy processing that each cloud can provide. The CTP provides a method to request and receive information about the elements of transparency across cloud services.

"The CloudTrust Protocol itself extends the NIST/DOD sponsored Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) as a packaging and expression technique for some of the elements of transparency. With a CloudTrust Protocol service (known as Transparency Service), decisions about degrees of trust in cloud processing are placed back in the hands of the users, and they once again can have the evidence and items of assurance they need to move more and more functions into more and more powerful cloud processing delivery models. This is digital trust in the cloud."

The session will include a discussion of how this transparency is reclaimed, and concludes with a brief demonstration scenario so the attendees can get a sense of what such transparency will look like and how it can make a difference in cloud usage.

Ron Knode is a director in the Global Security Solutions (GSS) business unit of CSC. In 2006, he was also named a Research Associate in CSC's internal “innovation think tank”, known as the Leading Edge Forum (LEF). Today he serves in both roles for CSC, bringing the innovation ideas and approaches uncovered in research to practical application in security services and technologies.
