15 Network Security of IaaS IaaS is provided by Open StackNatural question: How is the network organized?AnswerSoftware defined networksNetwork as a Service (API to describe network services)Combination of both

23 What is Quantum? A standalone Openstack service Provides network connectivity between a set of network “interfaces” from other services (e.g., vNICs from compute service, interfaces on a load-balancer service).Exposes API of logical abstractions for describing network connectivity + policy between interfaces.Uses a “plug-in” architecture, so multiple technologies can implement the logical abstractions.Provides a “building block” for sophisticated cloud network topologies.Does NOT provide advanced services like load-balancers, firewalls, etc. These things can “plug” into a network offered by Quantum.

25 Virtual Network Abstractions (1) Services (e.g., nova, atlas) expose interface-IDs via their own tenant APIs to represent any device from that service that can be “plugged” into a virtual network.Example: nova.foo.com/<tenant-id>/server/<server-id>/eth0Tenants use Quantum API to create networks, get back UUID:Example: quantum.foo.com/<tenant-id>/network/<network-id>Tenants can create ports on a network, get a UUID, and associate config with those ports (APIs for advanced port config are TBD, initially ports give L2 connectivity):Example: quantum.foo.com/<tenant-id>/network/<network-id>/port/<port-id>Tenants can “plug” an interface into a port by setting the attachment of a port to be the appropriate interface-id.Example: set quantum.foo.com/<tenant-id>/network/<network-id>/port/<port-id>/attach to value “nova.foo.com/<tenant-id>/server/<server-id>/eth0” .
26 Virtual Network Abstractions (2) Note: At no time does the customer see details of how a network is implemented (e.g., VLANs).Association of interfaces with network is an explicit step.Plugins can expose API extensions to introduce more complex functionality (e.g., QoS). Extension support is query-iable, so a customer can “discover” capabilities.API extensions that represent common functionality across many plug-ins can become part of the core API.Core API for diablo is simple, focused on connectivity. Core API will evolve.
27 Why Quantum?API gives ability to create interesting network topologies.Example: create multi-tier applicationsProvide way to connect interconnect multiple Openstack services (*-aaS).Example: Nova VM + Atlas LB on same private network.Open the floodgates to let anyone build services (open or closed) that plug into Openstack networks.Examples: VPN-aaS, firewall-aaS, IDS-aaS.Allows innovation plugins that overcomes common cloud networking problemsExample: avoid VLAN limits, provide strong QoS
28 Quantum +OVSwitch Demo Quantum running Open vSwitch PluginNova uses QEMU w/libvirt for computeExperimental Nova Quantum NetManagerSingle-node setup, with automated script, derived from Vish’s nova.sh script.Uses “simple quantum orchestrator” script(sqo.py) that speaks to Quantum/Nova APIs

30 Running the Demo To run the demo yourself, see: Requires a 64-bit Ubuntu Natty VM.Installation + setup is completely automated.
31 Virtual Cloud Can build virtual switching topologies using openflow Can create networking services – firewalls, load balancers, secure interconnects…Can create IaaS stacksCan connect SDNetworks to SDStacks at various levels of abstraction (SaaS, PaaS…)Define SD Cloud architectures for security, and other purposes
33 Back to Network Security Policies about the configurations of the infrastructure are used for specifying security and availability requirementsA critical device should be placed within a security perimeterUnprotected devices should not communicate with machines running critical servicesComputation on confidential data must performed on hosts under the control of DoDPolicy-driven approach has been taken by FISMA, PCI-DSS, NERCScalabilityReal-time detection of violationsRequirementsMonitoring itself needs to be secureInformation needs to be shared across cloud providers
