Title: Obfuscation for high-performance computing systems

Abstract

An example technique includes initializing, by an obfuscation computing system, communications with nodes in a distributed computing platform. The nodes include compute nodes that provide resources in the distributed computing platform and a controller node that performs resource management of the resources. The obfuscation computing system serves as an intermediary between the controller node and the compute nodes. The technique further includes outputting an interactive user interface (UI) providing a selection between a first privilege level and a second privilege level, and performing one of: based on the selection being for the first privilege level, a first obfuscation mechanism for the distributed computing platform to obfuscate digital traffic between a user computing system and the nodes, or based on the selection being for the second privilege level, a second obfuscation mechanism for the distributed computing platform to obfuscate digital traffic between the user computing system and the nodes.
