Bringing Security to High Performance Computing: Using Thales Enterprise Key Management for Panasas PanFS Encryption
Whether used to understand complex climate and weather forces or analyze defense and military intelligence data, high performance computing (HPC) systems store and manage massive volumes of data. HPC data is often sensitive and needs to be protected from unauthorized access – both from within the organization and without.
The best way to protect HPC data is to encrypt it. However, encrypting large volumes of data can generate large numbers of encryption keys, key stores and access policies. This creates a significant administrative burden to manage both the encryption and the associated key lifecycles.
Fortunately, Panasas and Thales have teamed together to offer customers a secure option for HPC systems.
