<p>Cluster computing finding increasing deployment in academic, research, enterprise for efficient resource management and coupled with this there is a increase in demand for concerns regarding the security and performance of these clusters. Security and performance are vital aspects within the field of cluster computing. However, security usually incurs a certain amount of performance varies and adds usage complexity to a field of computing where performance is pivotal and usage complexity is already high. In this paper we are presenting a security design platform and associated with security best practices, supplementing for high performance computing facilities. The planned work aims to handle issues regarding high performance computing security, specifically to mitigate the risks known within the current cluster security concerns and based on the progress we are introducing the secure job scheduling approach called ALPHA scheduler with some security features implemented in it. Planned research design and best practices arrange to give the simplest exchange between security approaches and performance. All together gives an approach of security in high performance computing cluster. © 2005 - 2016 JATIT &amp; LLS. All rights reserved.</p>
