Secure Platform for Processing Sensitive Data on Shared HPC Systems

by   Michel Scheerman, et al.

High performance computing clusters operating in shared and batch mode pose challenges for processing sensitive data. In the meantime, the need for secure processing of sensitive data on HPC system is growing. In this work we present a novel method for creating secure computing environments on traditional multi-tenant high-performance computing clusters. Our platform as a service provides a customizable, virtualized solution using PCOCC and SLURM to meet strict security requirements without modifying the exist-ing HPC infrastructure. We show how this platform has been used in real-world research applications from different research domains. The solution is scalable by design with low performance overhead and can be generalized for processing sensitive data on shared HPC systems imposing high security criteria
