Introduction Keylime is a tool which extends traditional IT orchestration to deliver cloud services on demand. It’s ideal for deploying software as a service (SaaS) and other cloud-delivered offerings on a global scale.
The challenge with software as a service (SaaS) is how to achieve scalability while still being able to support large workloads. Keylime is a new approach to the problem. Keylime is a tool which extends traditional IT orchestration to deliver cloud services on demand. It’s ideal for deploying software as a service (SaaS) and other cloud-delivered offerings on a global scale.
It is an integral part of IBM’s Cloud Fleet Platform (CFP) as an integrated solution for managing, monitoring, deploying, securing and protecting enterprise IT assets.
Background Keylime was developed in cooperation with IBM and can be easily integrated into various IBM Cloud platforms with similar capabilities. It has a powerful, intuitive interface and it is user-friendly and easy to learn.
Keylime is a fully-integrated solution with capabilities that are designed to meet the requirements of both cloud-deployed applications and SaaS offerings, including IBM CloudStack.
Keylime offers a seamless, fast integration process and a rich feature set.
Keylime integration: A secure and integrated method for software as a service providers (SaaS) to integrate into IBM Cloud. Keylime is enabled with the latest in IBM Cloud technologies including Microsoft.
Application integration: A secure and managed method for IBM Cloud to integrate their applications into Keylime. Keylime integrates with IBM Cloud and has direct access to IBM Bluemix, IBM Virtual Data Warehouse (IBM VDW), IBM Open Data Platform (IBM ODP), IBM Power BI and IBM CloudStack.
Application management: A cloud-managed and scalable, easy-to-use solution for deploying applications with the ease of a remote shell.
Keylime: A Trusted Platform Module for Cloud-Security Checks
Abstract: Keylime is a trusted platform module for cloud-security checks. It is a secure client-server program that uses a user-supplied certificate chain to verify the identity of remote web sites users in cloud services. The certificate chain is an association of digital certificates that has been digitally signed by trusted certificate authorities (CA) to a single root CA. The purpose of the client-server program is to allow users to submit certificates and check them against the root CA and other trusted CA. The trusted CA checks the validity of the association between a certificate and the root CA as well as other trusted CAs. Keylime uses a private key to encrypt data and the client-server program uses the public key of the trusted CA to decrypt the data. The key distribution in the client-server program consists of a client public key and a server public key. For the client-server program to encrypt web traffic, the client public key and the server public key are generated by the server. For the client-server program to decrypt web traffic, the server public key is used to generate a client public key. Although Keylime has the ability to perform any validation of a domain in the Internet, it must be associated with a trusted CA and the root CA of the associated domain. The root CA is the root of the trusted CAs of the associated domain.
Keylime is tested for security by the CAAS (Cloud-Security Assurance Architecture) Cloud Security Center (CSAC) at the University of Delaware.
Abstract: The PKCS#7 standard specifies a list of cryptographic algorithms. In addition, it defines several algorithms that are intended to protect data, such as Digital Signature Algorithms and Message Digest Algorithms. There has been a lot of progress made in recent years in the field of cryptographic methods; however, much of this progress has been applied to the design of cryptography for systems that do not use encryption.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT News) –
| MIT News (subscription link required) – Massachusetts Institute of Technology Announces $500,000 Investment in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for Digital Information Innovation (MIT) to Support the Next Step in Technology Development for the Global Digital Economy in Partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and National Institutes of Health (NIMH) and European Commission Collaborating Activities to Promote High-Quality, High-Performance Computing for the Global Digital Economy. MIT recently announced a $500,000 gift to support the next phase of technology development in support of the global digital economy by making information available more cheaply and securely to everyone, using artificial intelligence. The investment will help develop the next generation of digital infrastructures to support open access to research and the digitization of health data. This announcement supports MIT’s efforts to foster the next phase of technology development and the broader digital economy. In addition, the investment is in line with the Digital Economy Vision for the MIT. The Digital Economy is the global shift to a more knowledge-based society where humans and machines collaborate to build new systems and a new era of digital information delivery. MIT’s vision is for all innovation, not only in the information age, but across all areas of life and society, to thrive. The Digital Economy Vision addresses the need to create new pathways for research, and for all MIT faculty and students to collaborate, and to leverage the new resources and technology available to them to foster the next phase of technology development, and the broader digital economy. MIT’s vision for the MIT is to become the leading center for technology development, research, and education in the world, and to be the leader in technological innovation, and to be a hub for the global digital economy. MIT’s vision is to become the world’s leading center for technology development and innovation. The new digital infrastructure will enable rapid and efficient data acquisition and data analysis and will facilitate the delivery of data across all levels of society. The MIT will become the world’s leading center for digital information infrastructure.
Innovations, technologies, and knowledge and information flow have been on life support for a long time. Despite this, the world continues to suffer from the lack of access to innovative new technologies and ideas.
Tips of the Day in Software
Totem is a project-based tool for visual programming. It was created by a team of developers who wanted to create not just a scripting language, but actually the compiler and interactive editor that would be used by developers to solve their problems. The first incarnation of the project was an interactive scripting language called CSP (Compiler/Sandbox Project), which only worked on small programs. The CSP team has recently started work on an integrated version called CSP+ (Compiler/Sandbox Project + Integrated Editor), which includes an integrated editor and integrated compiler.
This is the basic vision of the CSP team as well, but of course it is not an easy vision to implement. The compiler will probably be too complex to support. The integrated editor will probably be way too complex to enable many people to use it.
