Title: Know thyself, then patch patch thyself.

Description: As we all know, all problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection. This is also the surest way to introduce new vulnerabilities (yes, even Kubernetes contains vulnerabilities). In this talk I will discuss the importance of knowing a deployment's threat model, defining the security domains and prioritising security patches. The objective of the talk is to reflect and question the partitioning of security domains, layers and features in a cloud deployment.

Speaker: Nicolae Paladi, Senior Researcher at RISE SICS and postdoctoral researcher at Lund University.

Bio: Nicolae conducts research on security in distributed systems, virtualisation, cloud and network communication infrastructure. During his PhD he worked on implementing trusted computing support for host attestation in OpenStack and on security of software network elements. He is now working on an open-source multi-cloud workload orchestrator ( and security isolation for parts of Open vSwitch. Prior to RISE SICS he worked as a software engineer in the finance industry.


Title: What we learned during 5 years of running Openstack.

Decription: I will share how we ended up with the design we are running today and the journey from a single data center running Havana to multiple data centers running Pike. We have changed a lot over the years and I will tell you about the things that we love and the things that we don't.

Speaker: Joakim Öhman, public cloud builder @ELASTX.

Bio: Joakim Öhman, public cloud builder @ELASTX, Helping companies to understand and embrace the cloud delivery model of IT.


Title: Orchestrate your Cloud with ansible.

Description: I will give a few example of how to use Ansible for provisioning of servers on OpenStack, and also, how to configure them. If you ever wondered about the "infrastructure as code" concept, stop by OpenStack Forum and have a look and Fredrik will show you have it's done.
