Keith Basil's Publications
- OpenStack Foundation

The OpenStack Security Guide provides an overview of security best practices, guidelines, and recommendations for increasing the security of an OpenStack deployment.
Objectives of the book include:
- Identify the security domains in OpenStack
- Provide guidance to secure your OpenStack deployment
- Highlight security concerns and potential mitigations in present day OpenStack
- Discuss upcoming security features
- To provide a community driven facility for knowledge capture and dissemination
Each OpenStack deployment embraces a wide variety of technologies, spanning Linux distributions, database systems, messaging queues, OpenStack components themselves, access control policies, logging services, security monitoring tools, and much more. It should come as no surprise that the security issues involved are equally diverse, and their in-depth analysis would require several guides. We strive to find a balance, providing enough context to understand OpenStack security issues and their handling, and provide external references for further information. The guide could be read from start to finish or sampled as necessary like a reference.

December 3, 2002 Arrangement for defining and processing voice enabled web applications using extensible markup language documents
Inventors: Keith Basil, Steve J Martin, Ryan Danner, Dean Dodrill, Geetha Ravishankar, Satish Joshi, Swaminathan Ravishankar
- United States Patent 6,490,564
- Issued December 3, 2002
A unified web-based voice messaging system provides voice application control between a web browser and an application server via an hypertext transport protocol (HTTP) connection on an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The application server executes the voice-enabled web application by runtime execution of extensible markup language (XML) documents that define the voice-enabled web application to be executed. Each voice application operation can be defined as any one of a user interface operation, a logic operation, or a function operation. Each XML document includes XML tags that specify the user interface operation, the logic operation and/or the function operation to be performed within a corresponding voice application operation, the XML tags being based on prescribed rule sets that specify the executable functions to be performed by the application runtime environment.
Application server configured for dynamically generating web pages for voice enabled web applications
- United States Patent 6766298
- Issued July 20, 2004
A unified web-based voice messaging system provides voice application control between a web browser and an application server via an hypertext transport protocol (HTTP) connection on an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The web browser receives an HTML page from the application server having an XML element that defines data for an audio operation to be performed by an executable audio resource. The application server executes the voice-enabled web application by runtime execution of extensible markup language (XML) documents that define the voice-enabled web application to be executed. The application server, in response to receiving a user request from a user, accesses a selected XML page that defines at least a part of the voice application to be executed for the user. The application server then parses the XML page, and executes the operation describer by the XML page.
