Telco, finance, insurance, healthcare, governments are among the regulated sectors, where security and in particular data privacy are fundamental to the design of your private cloud. Encryption at rest is one of the key tenets of this design to prevent any hardware theft to expose the data. However encryption at rest without an adequate certificate lifecycle management is just creating a false sense of security.
Read this whitepaper to:
- Understand uses cases where an Openstack private cloud on its own is not secure enough
- Examine the technical reasons why encryption at rest and certificate lifecycle management are needed for these use cases
- Investigate how 3rd party open source applications can be used to deliver these functionalities
