XML Security at Cloud Expo
OWASP AppSec DC 2009 had a compelling session that defined cloud taxonomies
and the security implications associated with the cloud computing.
The three taxonomies that have become part of our vernacular are:
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): Set of virtualized components that can be
assembled to build a application. Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Opsource, and
GoGrid are examples of IaaS where you can rent "virtual" hardware and
software as a "pay-as-you-go" services. If you need 5 Linux servers running
MySQL Database for 3 months, you'd subscribe to an IaaS provider and using
their REST or Web service-based API (or command line if you're too cool) to
provision, de-provision and monitor your instance. Platform as a Service
(PaaS): A runtime environment for application developer to deploy their
applications in their desired programming environm... (more)
Cloud Expo 2011 New York $800 Savings here!
One of the biggest concerns for enterprises considering public cloud services
is the notion that they are inherently unsecure. Many cloud implementations
treat security as an afterthought - layering it on top of the virtualization
server. A more secure solution is a "multi-layer approach," a series of
security layers that begin at the base of the network and protect an
organization's assets to the service layer.
In their session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Eric Chiu, president
and co-founder of HyTrust, John Rowell, CTO and SVP, Operations at OpSource,
and Jim French, Distinguished System Engineer at Cisco, will discuss the best
practices for securing the cloud, comparing and contrasting various
approaches for providing edge-to-edge security.

Round Two – Last time I wrote a blog comparing APM versus network-based APM
tools, which I still consider NPM at it’s core regardless of what some
critics and competitors claim. Let me make one thing clear though, NPM is
great for equipping IT network administrators to see how fast or slow data is
traveling through the pipes of their application. Unfortunately,
network-based APM tools simply cannot provide App Ops granular visibility
into the application runtime when isolating bottlenecks go beyond the system
level and it’s final destination – the end user’s browser.
I find several of the blogs and YouTube clips from such NPM vendors quite
comical as they try to throw punches at APM companies. Their arguments are
centered primarily against agent-based approaches being an inadequate APM
solution due to today’s fickle and distributed application architectures.
It’s n... (more)
