  1. 1. Moving to the Cloud: NIST Vision, Initiatives & Collaboration part of the US Federal Cloud Computing Strategy Dawn Leaf NIST Senior Executive for Cloud Computing March 29, 2011Information Technology Laboratory National Institute of Standards and Technology
  2. 2. NIST Cloud Computing Program Goal • Accelerate the federal government’s secure and effective adoption of NIST Mission: cloud computing* To promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, – Build a USG Cloud Computing standards, and Technology Roadmap which technology focuses on the highest priority USG cloud computing security, in ways that interoperability and portability enhance economic requirements security and improve our quality of life ©Robert Rathe – Lead efforts to develop standards and guidelines in close consultation and collaboration with standards bodies, the private sector, and other stakeholders * REF Technology Laboratory 2 National Institute of Standards and Technology
  3. 3. Universal Challenges Rule Book • Adopters need a “Rulebook” from the Chicago, • cloud model is emerging -- there isn’t a large Milwaukee, St. Paul and installed base Pacific Railroad • mainly commodity & infrastructure Company dated 1959., antiqueradio • Providers need to understand the specific issues and barriers – not just general security, interoperability & portability concerns Improve our, Musicians are Expert Mind Readers, Mark Gibson, January 2009 • Detailed cloud computing services are defined in the eye of the beholder – hard to get apples to Copy right free images apples comparisonInformation Technology Laboratory 3 National Institute of Standards and Technology
  4. 4. Universal Challenges Balance -- between advantages of formal standards development processes and market driven defacto “standard” specifications US Library of Congress Backlog of internet driven policy questions & decisions (e.g. privacy and security) now need to be considered in light of cloud roles & responsibilities US Library of Congress The Cloud Computing “space” & community is so broad that it isn’t feasible to cover all relevant work & collaboration opportunities Copy Right Free ImagesInformation Technology Laboratory 4 National Institute of Standards and Technology
  5. 5. NIST Cloud Computing Program Concept & Rationale Strategic Program Tactical Program How to build a USG Cloud Computing Standards Roadmap NIST CC efforts • SDO submissions & support 1.
