Through work on the DRS Data Safe Haven ISG Research Services (RSS) developed a Security Information and Event Monitoring tool, using an industry standard data analytics tool (SPLUNK). While this is a very complex and powerful tool the RSS team has been able to extend the Splunk inputs to a sub-set of RSS services (eg. DataStore).  

The use of Splunk with DataStore has already proved extremely valuable in identifying security vulnerabilities and confirming architectural configurations.

Cloud Infrastructure

 

This DRS project provides external specialist technical support for the essential regular software updates to the Eleanor computational cloud service. The underlying software which provides the Eleanor services is OpenStack, an industry standard open-source cloud computing software platform.  Due to its open source nature the Open Stack system typically requires a regular 6 monthly update cycle to maintain critical functionality and also for critical security updates.
