Security in Open Cloud Infrastructures - SOCI 2022

Modern information systems are built from a complex composition of networks, infrastructure, devices, services, and applications, all interconnected by flows of data that are often private and financially sensitive. 5G networks, which can create hyperlocalized services, have highlighted many of the deficiencies of current practices in use today to create and operate information systems. Emerging cloud computing techniques, such as Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) and elastic computing, offer a path for a future re-imagining of how we create, deploy, secure, operate, and retire information systems. Furthermore, blockchain technology can profitably be integrated with cloud systems to guarantee secure access control to data, to support resource allocation, and to realize secure and fair payment services.

A comprehensive new approach is needed for all OSI layers from layer 2 up to applications, built on underlying principles that include reproducibility, continuous integration/continuous delivery, auditability, and versioning. There are obvious needs to redesign and optimize the protocols from network layer to application layer. Our vision seeks to augment existing Cloud Computing and Networking solutions with support for multiple cloud infrastructures and seamless integration of cloud-based microservices.
