Title: Obfuscation for high-performance computing systems

Abstract

An example method includes initializing, by an obfuscation computing system, communications with nodes in a distributed computing platform, the nodes including one or more compute nodes and a controller node, and performing at least one of: (a) code-level obfuscation for the distributed computing platform to obfuscate interactions between an external user computing system and the nodes, wherein performing the code-level obfuscation comprises obfuscating data associated with one or more commands provided by the user computing system and sending one or more obfuscated commands to at least one of the nodes in the distributed computing platform; or (b) system-level obfuscation for the distributed computing platform, wherein performing the system-level obfuscation comprises at least one of obfuscating system management tasks that are performed to manage the nodes or obfuscating network traffic data that is exchanged between the nodes.
