Slides from the CloudAudit/A6 Working group call on 2/12/10. The goal of CloudAudit is to provide a common interface that allows Cloud providers to automate the Audit, Assertion, Assessment, and Assurance (A6) of their environments and allow authorized consumers of their services to do likewise via an open, extensible and secure API. CloudAudit is a volunteer cross-industry effort from the best minds and talent in Cloud, networking, security, audit, assurance and architecture backgrounds

  • Agenda
    Introducing CloudAudit & A6 Branding
    Overview & Working Group Goals (5 Mins)
    Introduction of the core team (5 Mins)
    Specification/Requirements Discussion (35 Mins)
    SafeMashups - Brokering Trust in Clouds (15 Mins)
  • Introducing CloudAudit
    A6 – The Automated Audit, Assertion, Assessment, & Assurance API
  • Branding/Home/Coverage
    Moving to the CloudAudit brand, keeping A6 as a “byline” – Easier to find and understand
    Going to 99designs.com for logo development
    Migrate Google Groups Members from A6WG to CloudAudit
    Call http://www.CloudAudit.org home
    Add Wiki/Blog/Code Repository
    Plan for official “launch” shortly
  • Overview of CloudAudit
    A Brief Review Of the Effort
  • CloudAudit (A6) Overview
    A6 is the geeky byline for the working group of CloudAudit and stands for:Automated Audit, Assertion, Assessment, and Assurance API
    The goal of CloudAudit is to provide a common interface that allows Cloud providers to automate the Audit, Assertion, Assessment, and Assurance of their environments and allow authorized consumers of their services to do likewise via an open, extensible and secure API.
  • CloudAudit Overview (Continued)
    The goal is to utilize security automation capabilities with existing tools/protocols/frameworks via a standard, open and extensible set of interfaces
    Keep it simple, lightweight and easy to implement; offer primitive definitions & language structure using HTTP(S) first at a very basic level (firewall=true or SAS70=false)
    Allow for extension and elaboration by providers and choice of trusted assertion validation sources, checklist definitions, etc.
    Encourage adoption by driving client usage; providers opt-in. Null returns could be considered “non-validated” or “non-asserted”
    Do not require adoption of other platform-specific APIs
    Provide interfaces to Cloud naming and registry services
  • CloudAudit Core Team
    Initial Core Team To Drive Development Of Specifications & Requirements
  • Motivated Interested Parties* ;)
    *Does not denote any contractual arrangement or corporate commitment
  • Specifications & Requirements Discussion
    Discussing the model and moving forward…
  • Let’s Revisit OCCI
    A Practical Reference

    Get the resource,
    in whatever format
    RESPONSE
    It’s in OVF
    format
    You can “start” it
    Related “documentation”
    It’s a “compute” resource

  • An Simpler CloudAudit Example

  • Which Can Present Things Like…
  • An Simpler CloudAudit Example
    http://www.cloudaudit.net/.well-known/cloudaudit/com/rackspace/
  • Or Element Audit/Assurance Such As:
    http://www.cloudaudit.net/.well-known/cloudaudit/com/rackspace/com.csc.cloudtrust.xml
  • So Now the Fun Begins…
    We need to build the foundational set of requirements and specifications that define elements of interest for v1.0 of the CloudAudit Protocol
    How will the exposed API be consumed?
    How will the resultant responses be cross-referenced to things like compliance frameworks that have specific requirements?
    What are the A6 requirements for third party trust brokers and should worry about this now?
    We should be able to get to a roughed out work product relatively quickly given the Cloud service consumer-driven requirements
