Trusted Cloud Resource Pools (Cope, Erl)

How can cloud-based resource pools be secured and become trusted?

Trusted Cloud Resource Pools

Problem

Cloud platform pool security needs to be achieved to meet cloud consumer compliance and regulatory security requirements. Verification of the platform assurance level is critical for regulated industries.

Solution

Trusted resource pools made up of trusted geotagged computers are made available by the cloud provider, and can be verified by the consumer through direct monitoring or evidence through auditing.

Application

Achieving security through the use of trusted platform modules (TPMs), validating digitally signed code, geotagging, and remote monitoring of the platform security status, cloud consumers can verify that they are using compute platforms that meet their security assurance requirements.
