Open Compute Project Announces New Data Center Security Program


The S.A.F.E. program provides an open source audit checklist.

The Open Compute Project (OCP) has announced several efforts to expand its mission to advance open specification for data centers, reports Sean Michael Kerner.

Among the initiatives is a new program called Security Appraisal Framework and Enablement (S.A.F.E.), which is aimed at improving data center hardware and firmware security.

“The program provides an open source, standardized audit checklist and criteria for selecting third-party auditors to review device firmware,” Kerner says, and “the goal of the effort is to reduce costs and redundancy around device security reviews, while providing assurance to customers on firmware updates.”
