  2. 2. Cloud Security Concerns • Security is the number 1 concern for cloud adoption • 75% responded 4 or 5 (on 1 to 5 scale) * • Key security issues: • Isolation of tenants from each other & hosting infrastructure • Compute and network layers • Authentication / Authorization / Auditing of access to cloud services • Unauthorized access / DoS due to weak (or mis)configuration * Source: IDC Enterprise Panel

Private Cloud Enabled IdentityAll Microsoft solutions for private cloud leverage a single identity store to authenticate userswith Microsoft® Active Directory® across physical and virtual systems. Active Directory System Center Virtual Forefront Identity Machine Manager Manager o Single identity store to authenticate users Forefront™ Security Solutions o Support across physical and Active Directory virtual systems Virtualization o Federated Identity Hardware Presentation Application Forefront Identity Manager Hyper-V™ Terminal Microsoft o Easy user provisioning Services App. Virt. o Identity synchronization o Simplified management of Network Access Protection cloud resources Server and Domain Isolation
  10. 10. Solution Example – Enhancing Private Cloud with Identity • Hyper-V and SC Virtual Machine Manager uses roles • Roles can contain users or groups from AD • Delegation of datacenter management • Forefront Identity Manager securely manages membership in AD groups Private Cloud Roles in Leverage AD Manage AD Self Service Hyper-V and Groups in Groups in FIM secure andSystem Center roles compliant
  11. 11. Solution Example- Enhancing Private Cloud with IdentityHyper-V Authorization Manager + Common identity in Private Cloud • Default role allows access to all operations • Additional roles with desired rights can be created • 33 different operations OOB grouped under • Hyper-V Service Operations • Hyper-V Networks Operations • Hyper-V Virtual Machine Operations
  12. 12. Solution Example - Enhancing Private Cloud with IdentityVirtual Machine Manager + Common identity in Private Cloud• The Administrator profile • Complete administrative access to all the hosts, virtual machines, and library servers in VMM 2008• The Delegated Administrator profile • Grants administrative access to a defined set of host groups and library servers• The Self-Service User profile • Administrative access to a defined set of virtual machines through the Web-based Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal• Additional delegation capabilities in Self service portal

  15. 15. TO THE CLOUD! • Using Hyper-V as an infrastructure for Private Cloud is great for server optimization but, without an IAM architecture in place, this is just moving around the administrative problems • FIM provides a compliant and well managed AD. Compliance here is about automation of changing access permissions, making sure users have the right access, reporting. • Active Directory provides the common identity platform for classic datacenter hosted systems, to private cloud and also paves the way to enabling use of public cloud resources.
