A Distributed Security Infrastructure for Carrier Class Linux Clusters

Traditionally, the telecom industry has used clusters to meet its carrier-class requirements of high availability, reliability, and scalability, while relying on cost-effective hardware and software. Efficient cluster security is now an essential requirement and has not yet been addressed in a coherent fashion on clustered systems. This paper presents an approach for distributed security architecture that supports advanced security mechanisms for current and future security needs, targeted for carrier-class application servers running on clustered systems.
