|1:00 PM|| Brian Hugenbruch - IBM - z/VM 6.3 Security "News and How To's"
If you've been watching the news lately, you'll know that risks and threats to the security of your datacenter are always adapting and evolving. Fortunately, so is z/VM. This presentation covers the latest information on z/VM security features, including technical functions new to z/VM 6.3. Topics will also include in-depth explorations of popular z/VM security topics such as CryptoExpress4S virtualization, isolation of VSWITCH network traffic, the z/VM SSL-TLS Server, and the use of RACF in a z/VM Single System Image cluster.

|2:15 PM||Brian Hugenbruch - IBM - Every System z Cloud Has an Iron Lining
Cloud computing has emerged as a game-changing model for accelerating deployments of infrastructure, platforms, and software as elastic services. However, the IT industry as a whole is wary of Cloud's security implications. If we can't see it, is it really secure? What do security and standards compliance even mean in a cloud environment? And what does this mean for the traditional workloads running under System z? This presentation will clear away some of the fog that surrounds the concept of security in the cloud by examining the cloud service model in greater detail. We will discuss security concerns and threats to cloud deployments, and then trace the technical wiring that underpins a System z Private Cloud to explain how security can and does flourish in a z/VM-hosted IaaS environment.
