Sulakshan Vajipayajula and Ravi Muthukrishnan have just released a very interesting tutorial in the developerWorks security zone called “Gain security insights into Bluemix with Apache Libcloud.”
Most people think of the Apache Libcloud library for Python as a management tool. And it is of course, but as the authors show, the same APIs can be used to gather security related information about all the virtual machines under management so you can builds a picture of the security posture of your virtual environment.
The tutorial comes complete with code snippets you can use as a starting point for your own security posture scripts.
