Abstract

Idea 1: Security Zones within a BladeChassis System A BladeChassis system can be made to have security zones by using a representation of different security zones within a management module and having the management module create the zones by configuration of the integrated chassis switch. Idea 2: Information Flow Control Between Regions of a BladeChassis System A BladeChassis system can have different regions. The allowable flow of information (e.g., IP Packets) between the regions, PATHS, is definable and the limations on the characteristics of the flow can also be defined with security or flow-control mechanisms.
