September 26, 2023

NIST has published Interagency Report (IR) 8476, 3rd High-Performance Computing Security Workshop: Joint NIST-NSF Workshop Report, which offers summaries and key insights from collaborative workshop hosted by NIST and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

High-performance computing (HPC) is a vital computational infrastructure for processing vast data volumes, conducting intricate simulations, and facilitating advanced machine learning model training. As such, HPC plays a pivotal role in scientific discovery, innovation, and economic competitiveness. Cybersecurity in HPC is crucial for safeguarding against potential attacks and misuses while ensuring the integrity of data and research. Nonetheless, HPC systems often possess unique hardware, software, and user environments that present distinct cybersecurity challenges.

This collaborative workshop successfully brought together stakeholders from government, academia, and industry to engage in discussions pertaining to community needs, ongoing initiatives, and prospective pathways in HPC security. This publicly available workshop report offers comprehensive summaries of technical sessions, key insights from breakout sessions, and a summary of the keynote presentations.
