NRRC Video Series - Video 3 : Federated Identity and Access Management

In September, the NCOIC delivered the Geospatial Community Cloud (GCC) demonstration.  Sponsored by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, this demonstration showed how an interoperable, hybrid-cloud operating environment can be quickly enabled and used as a rapid response capability.While this demonstration was designed around lessons learned in the 2010 Haitian Earthquake, the effort showed how a cloud services brokerage approach could be used to quickly provide critical information technology infrastructure support to an unplanned event.

The NCOIC is an international organization for accelerating the global implementation of network centric principles and systems--to improve information sharing among various communities of interest for the betterment of their productivity, interactivity, safety, and security. The NCOIC Rapid Response Capability (NRRC) video series supports that mission by broadly disseminating information about the GCC demonstration for the good of the global community.

In Video 3: Federated Identity and Access Management, Dr. Craig Lee, senior scientist with the Computer Systems Research Dept. at The Aerospace Corporation, talks on ensuring a trusted federation environment, managing the security of the information and creating virtual organizations in OpenStack. Topics addressed include:
  • Securely managing cloud-based data and resource sharing
  • Identity and access management
  • Single sign-on in a federated cloud environment
  • Security in federated community clouds
  • OpenStack Keystone security service
  • OpenStack Swift object store service
