Trusted Multi-tenant Infrastructure
With the increasing dependence on information systems, every end-user organization relies on high operational efficiency of the infrastructure while reducing the operational costs of maintaining standalone infrastructures. The TCG can establish standards on which improved information flow and infrastructure management efficiency are based, with consideration to making the infrastructure more cost effective for the customer. Whether these costs are a measure of energy, physical space, IT expertise, or some other aspect of IT infrastructure operation, it is becoming increasingly critical to enable trust models and interoperability that support secure multi-tenant use and management of back-end infrastructure, and permit the sharing of high-density IT resources.
Key Objectives for the TMI Work Group:
- Standards framework for implementing
- Shared Infrastructures
- Multi-provider infrastructures
- Reference models and implementation guidance
- Identify and address gaps in existing standards
The Trusted Multi-tenant Infrastructure (TMI) use case document describes the foundational relationships between various components within a shared infrastructure environment and how they interact based on three core functions: establishment of trusted context between parties, exchange of information between parties in a trusted context, and enforcement of policy.
