Scalable Capability-Based Authorization For High-Performance Parallel File Systems, Nicholas Mills

All Theses

As the size and scale of supercomputers continues to increase at an
exponential rate the number of users on a given supercomputer will
only grow larger. A larger number of users on a supercomputer places a
greater importance on the strength of information security. Nowhere is
this requirement for security more apparent than the file system, as
users expect their data to be protected from accidental or deliberate
modification.
In spite of the ever-increasing demand for more secure file system
access the majority of parallel file systems do not implement a robust
security protocol for fear it will negatively impact ...
