(PDF Link) VMWare, RSA and Intel run a Cloud Security Proof of Concept for NIST

Here’s a really interesting PDF from NIST on securing workloads in the cloud. The PDF describes a proof of concept (POC) carried out with VMware, RSA and Intel. The POC  has a focus on testing geolocation in the cloud for the purpose of constraining the physical location of a server that a workload can be moved to for security or compliance reasons.

The principles of the POC are quoted from the PDF as:

  1. Create a part of the cloud to meet the specific and varying security requirements of users.
  2. Control access to that cloud so that the right applications get deployed there.
  3. Enable audits of that portion of the cloud so that users can verify compliance.
