SELinux at Lockheed: A New Multi-Level Security Initiative

Sarah Storms, Project Engineer, Lockheed Martin

In this video from the 2015 PBS Works User Group, Sarah Storms from Lockheed Martin presents: A New Multi-Level Security Initiative.

“Historically cyber security in HPC has been limited to detecting intrusions rather than designing security from the beginning in a holistic, layered approach to protect the system. SELinux has provided the needed framework to address cyber security issues for a decade, but the lack of an HPC and data analysis eco-system based on SELinux and the perception that the resulting configuration is “hard” to use has prevented SELinux configurations from being widely accepted. This presentation will discuss the eco-system that has been developed and certified, debunk the “hard” perception, and illustrate approaches for both government and commercial applications. The presentation includes discussions on SELinux architecture and features, Altair PBS Professional Queuing System, Scale-out Lustre Storage, Applications Performance on SELinux (Vectorization and Parallelization), Relational Databases, and Security Functions (Auditing and other Security Administration actions).”
