Abstract: As enterprises look to move their production workloads into the public and hybrid clouds, encryption is increasingly important tool for ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of their data. But what happens with the keys? Does the enterprise continue to maintain sole control of them? Do they entrust the keys to the cloud service provider? What are the technical alternatives and what are the risks that the different alternatives entail? This discussion explores these alternatives and then looks at what game theory can say about the pros and cons of these alternatives. In particular, we'll look at whether there are Nash equilibriums that yield unexpected insights into strategies for the relationship of keys and clouds.
