University of Kent team to work on protocol independent federated identity management in OpenStack

At the Cloud Plugfest December 2014 in London,Primeur Magazinehad the opportunity to interview David Chadwick, University of Kent. For the last couple of years, he and his team have been working on protocol independent federated identity management in OpenStack and making sure that OpenStack can basically talk any number of federation protocols and manage users from any number of IDPs and ultimately give them access to OpenStack resources.

From Cloud federation to general federation management

At the Cloud Plugfest December 2014 in London,Primeur Magazinehad the opportunity to interview Craig Lee, a senior scientist in the Computer Systems Research Department at the Aerospace Corporation. His interest lies in Cloud federation management, and more specifically general federation management because the value of a federation will really depend on a number of things that you can essentially hook up together. Besides just being able to manage a Cloud infrastructure you have to be able to manage the federation of any kind of resource at the application level of any kind of service level. Craig Lee thinks this is really going to be a core area. The more things you can federate the bigger the value of your federation will be. This is the goal that Craig Lee is pursuing by attending the Cloud Plugfest. Read further...
