Cloud and the Military

.… Customization, efficiency, availability, resiliency, security and privacy___

.…Standardization, capital preservation, flexibility and time to deploy

Flexible Delivery Models

  • Cloud Computing shows promise in the commercial world
    • Cost, Schedule, and Performance parameters are encouraging
  • Private cloud architectures in military context are another thing
  • Public …
  • Service provider owned and managed
  • Access by subscription
  • Delivers select set of standardized business process, application and/or infrastructure services on a flexible price per use basis.
  • Private …
  • Privately managed.
  • Access limited to command and its partner network.
  • Drives efficiency, standardization and best practices while retaining greater customization and control

Cloud Services

Cloud Computing


  • Hybrid …
  • Access to client, partner network, and third party resources


cloud and navair what s really needed
Cloud and NAVAIR(What’s really needed…..)

Despite the IT cost savings, speed to deployment, and performance, cloud computing is not a viable military capability until the following are solved:

  • Foundational Cloud Computing
  • Resilience
  • Compliance
  • Analytics
  • Deep Packet Inspection
  • Multi-tenancy
foundational work
Foundational Work
  • NCOIC, among others, is working this problem
  • Cloud Computing WG is developing a Hybrid Cloud Computing pattern
    • Potential for an NGA pilot
  • The NCOIC Cyber Security IPT is working on the global authentication problem
    • Solutions, technology independent
  • IBM Mission Oriented Cloud Computing
    • 10 month project to work the hard engineering problems for AF Cloud Computing
    • Completion next month
foundational cloud computing
FoundationalCloud Computing
  • Federated Identity Management Capability
      • Provide ability for external authentication (think coalition forces…..)
  • Process governance for approval purposes
  • Automated and Request Driven Provisioning
      • Foundational Service Discovery
      • Operational Service Deployment
      • Service Delivery Monitoring
  • Operational Monitoring
cloud computing and compliance
Cloud Computing and Compliance
  • Compliance provides distribution, revocation, and integrity services for security policies
    • Prove identification and authentication
    • Prove role provisioning capability
    • Prove role based permissions authentication to identified entities
    • Prove auditing of privileged user
    • Prove patch management of end points
cloud and resilience
Cloud and Resilience
  • Can we protect?
    • Protection for the cloud infrastructure achieved through:
      • Network attack protection at the perimeter
      • Virtual firewalls protecting servers
      • Specialized database protection capabilities
  • Can we rebuild?
    • Reconstruction of damaged cloud resources
      • Rapid restoration from gold copies
  • Can we relocate?
    • Relocation of virtualized resources
      • Rapid relocation to a new VLAN
analytics know it now defend at machine speed
Analytics – Know It NowDefend at Machine Speed
  • Step One : Collection
    • Security and configuration logs
    • Internal network sensors and network protection devices
    • Servers
  • Step Two: Correlation and Reduction
    • Ingest engine provides filtered sensor data to the analytics engine for classification and correlation
  • Step Three: Response
    • The response engine initiates autonomic security policy changes
deep packet inspection is it safe
Deep Packet Inspection Is It Safe?

Provide behavior-based, near real time detection and response to network level threats

  • All network traffic is inspected for behavior based attacks
    • TCP/IP level network traffic inspection detects out of spec protocols
    • Behavior based allows zero day protection
  • Detected threats cause autonomic security policy changes to be implemented
multi tenancy peaceful secure co existence
Multi-TenancyPeaceful, Secure Co-existence
  • Validate VM Isolation Management
    • Prove that data confidentiality exists between images
  • Prove ability to detect and correct image provisioning anomalies
    • Test that deployed VM images are correctly configured
    • Show that corrective actions for mis-configured VM images can be applied
  • Prove rapid provisioning capabilities
    • Rapid deployment of new VM images
    • Rapid provisioning of new images
    • Rapid access by new users
