Abstract: 

Ransomware poses a massive threat to organizations and individuals. However, detecting and protecting from it is a huge challenge. Don’t worry, cloud-native storage is here to save the day!

This talk presents a ransomware detection and quarantine solution based on Ceph Object Store (Ceph RGW) that Rook orchestrates.

Ceph RGW is often used to store and backup data for organizations, or for individuals using cloud storage providers. This solution detects changes in the entropy of the objects as they are uploaded. Detection is done by comparing them to the entropy of past uploaded objects. If an abnormality is detected, they are quarantined.
