OpenStack Security blog: An oldie but a goodie Josh McKenty's EMEA
Launch Slides
<http://secstack.org/2012/08/an-oldie-but-a-goodie-josh-mckentys-emea-launch-slides/>

This is a pretty antiquated presentation. Plenty of stuff has changed in
openstack since it was given, for better and for worse. But it gives you
an idea that the origins of OpenStack were built with security in mind.
When at NASA we had some pretty good security and policy guys
contributing heavily to the sprint planning sessions we had. The result
was a code base that was fairly flexible when it came to adjusting
itself to meet policy requirements.
