Title: Secure Cross-Site Analytics on Openshift Logs
Abstract: Openshift is a Kubernetes platform developed by Red Hat to manage clients’ containerized applications. When an incident happens at a client’s cluster and the client asks for support, Red Hat engineers need to access runtime logs or monitoring metrics to locate root-causes. However, obtaining access to logs isn’t easy, since the log entries may contain sensitive or proprietary data. The current practice involves a series of steps, including legal actions before the engineers can obtain the logs, and is hard to generalize since the obtained logs belong to a single client. Secrecy is Secure Multi-Party Computing (MPC) platform that requires low computational overhead while providing strong security guarantees, therefore, it can be used to analyze logs across multiple clients. This presentation covers my work on applying Secrecy to secure cross-site analytics on Openshift logs, along with ongoing work and future perspectives.
