Security

Nobody beats PBS Professional for secure HPC workload management, with Common Criteria EAL3+ security certification and support for Red Hat SELinux cross-domain security (MLS).

PBS Professional offers the most comprehensive available capabilities for secure workload management. Supported solutions include:

  • EAL3+ Security: PBS Professional is the only HPC workload manager that has achieved Common Criteria EAL3+ certification. Common Criteria is the international standard for certifying software technology conforms to stringent security requirements. This certification is internationally recognized under the Common Criteria Recognition Agreement (CCRA). Independent testing and evaluation was performed by atsec information security under the CC scheme of the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI).
  • RedHat SELinux support: PBS Professional offers a supported solution for cross-domain configurations of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, delivering robust new security capabilities for HPC workload management cross-domain security. By supporting cross-domain (also known as multi-level security or MLS) systems, PBS Professional provides a better solution for flexible, highly configurable shared environments where security and performance are top priorities, such as classified research and development communities and government organizations. This capability is currently Limited Availability (LA); ask Altair for details. Read about Lockheed Martin's PBS MLS installation in this case study.
    Quote
    "Red Hat Enterprise Linux features tight integration with SELinux, which enables the platform’s native configurations to offer Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), data labeling, and continuous monitoring of security controls. Through PBS Professional, Altair abstracts these technical complexities to provide a consumable interface for cross-domain supercomputing, supporting multi-level security and unifying underlying security controls with workload management."
