3rd High-Performance Computing Security Workshop

3rd High Performance Computing Security Workshop

Executive Order 13702 established the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) to maximize the benefits of high-performance computing (HPC) for economic competitiveness and scientific discovery. Security is an essential component of HPC. NIST HPC Security Working Group (WG) has been leading the effort to create a comprehensive and reliable security guidance for HPC systems. As part of the Working Group mission and to reach greater HPC scientific community, NIST, in collaboration with National Science Foundation (NSF), will host the 3rd High-Performance Computing Security Workshop on March 15-16, 2023. The workshop aims to listen to community’s needs and feedbacks, report and reflect on the ongoing activities at HPC Security WG, and define and discuss future directions with stakeholders from industry, academia, and government.
