This workshop explains selected security challenges involving Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing technologies and geolocation. It will be a hands-on proof of concept implementation that was designed to address those challenges. NIST has introduced a draft interagency report 7904 titles, Trusted Geolocation in the Cloud: Proof of Concept Implementation (Draft) which provides sufficient details so that organizations can reproduce it if desired. The publication which details this workshop is intended to be a blueprint or template that can be used by the general security community to validate and implement the described proof of concept implementation.
This workshop is FREE.
