Automated NFV security scans in OPNFV continuous integration

At the OPNFV Summit in Berlin, I explained how the OPNFV Security group has integrated security scans in the Continuous Integration  (CI) process. This means that now the Platform Build Tests execute automatic vulnerability checks on the multiple integration environments deployed worldwide as part of the Pharos labs. Here’s a video of the presentation we gave at the summit.

My colleague, Marcos (and co-author of this post) explains the OPNFV Security group’s mission: Improve OPNFV security through architecture recommendations, better documentation, code reviews, upstream collaboration, vulnerability management and security research. It provides an umbrella group to encourage development of security-centric functions within the OPNFV ecosystem and the upstream communities to handle vulnerability and threats in a coordinated manner.

A path to Mobile Edge Computing with Red Hat OpenStack.

Mobile-edge computing (MEC) is a highly distributed computing architecture based on the deployment of small computing units in both outdoor and indoor radio access network (RAN) facilities at the edge of their mobile networks. Red Hat has joined a recently created European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) working group to help define MEC use-cases and architecture details as a complementary effort to the existing NFV and 5G initiatives.
