In the last few years, Yahoo applications have been moving from Yahoo-only data centers to a hybrid cloud model of corporate data centers and public cloud resources. Once Yahoo was acquired by Verizon, the need to coordinate between Yahoo and Verizon data centers was added to the mix. Moving from a simple single data center model to a multi-origination model required the applications to move from a simple minded authentication model that relied to a large degree on knowledge of corporate IP addresses. In addition application communication between data-center entities required strong encryption when crossing the Internet. Verizon Media leveraged two open source products to securely enable this hybrid cloud migration: Athenz for authentication and authorization, and Apache Traffic Server for consistent policy enforcement and communication encryption. In this presentation Susan will describe how these open source technologies were used and highlight the challenges encountered.
