6:15-8:00 “Encrypt Everything, Everywhere” by Dustin Kirkland of Gazzang.

Title: Encrypt Everything, Everywhere

72% of the 21 million health care records that have been compromised in the United States since September of 2009 should have been trivially protected using comprehensive encryption of the data before being written to disk.  See: http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/administrative/breachnotificationrule/breachtool.html

A busy cloud compute node from OpenStack or Amazon EC2 might spin up hundreds or thousands of instances per day.  Ephemeral, block, and object storage -- each and every one of these should always be encrypted before being written to the underlying physical media. The good news is that multiple excellent file and disk encryption solutions exist in Linux, such as eCryptfs and dm-crypt, making encrypting everything simple and cost-effective.

The challenge for organizations lies in how to manage the crypto keys. In this session, we'll discuss encryption and key management best practices and examine some use cases for companies that store sensitive and regulated data in the cloud.
