DescriptionAs HPC gradually permeates more areas of public interest, in part driven by the 5th paradigm of computing, a hands-off approach to security aspects in favor of performance and power is becoming imprudent at best. Paired with HPC’s traditional role of early technology adoption, a new set of vulnerabilities are emerging that are not necessarily found in other computing scenarios that operate with more established technologies. In addition to early adoption vulnerabilities, the exploits specific to the HPC community arise from acute hardware heterogeneity, novel networks technologies/topologies, massive resource management orchestration, heavy reliance on open software, brittle experimental software, and dusty deck software with a lack of maintenance. We propose a new workshop “S-HPC” that focuses on threats and solutions across the HPC hardware/software stack. These threats include weaknesses in current/future architectural designs, escalation of privileges through data extraction or computation manipulation, intentional misuse of resources across scientific instruments.
