‘OpenStack’. Clearly, it sounds great. But what exactly is it? And, maybe even more importantly: what can you do with OpenStack and why would you prefer this platform over traditional cloud solutions? On 5 October 2016, at the partner meeting ‘The Future Decrypted’ in Rotterdam, CloudVPS explained OpenStack and provided (background) information that we wish to share with you.
Yesterday researchers from the Vrije Universiteit van Amsterdan and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven published a new vulnerability named Flip Feng Shui. This attack tries to get SSH keys from virtual servers in the Cloud by using the Row hammer vulnerability. Big words that sound scary. But are they? Is this the end of the Cloud?

A new version of the standard was published in September, 2013. This updated version simplified a number of its elements, and improved on its overall structure.
