Establishing Trust in Clouds Using the CADF Standard

Presented by

Matt Rutkowski of IBM and DMTF CADF Working Group Co-Chair

About this talk

Customers will not trust clouds to host their workloads and data without the ability to self-audit and monitor the provider’s platform and infrastructure. The DMTF Cloud Audit Data Federation (CADF) specification provides a comprehensive event model that can be used to solve this problem and prove compliance against corporate, industry or regional policies in any cloud deployment. This session will provide an overview of the CADF specification and how it has been successfully implemented in open source and integrated into the OpenStack IaaS platform. In addition, we will show how the robust CADF event format, besides being designed for traditional security auditing, can also provide accurate metering data that can be used for SLA monitoring, real-time analytics and problem diagnosis in cloud infrastructures.
