Protecting Virtual Environments from Hypervisor Sabotage

Abstract

Organizations moving their physical server infrastructure onto virtual platforms for cost savings are finding their virtual hosts and guests are now open to new security and non-compliance risks. Workloads shifted to virtualized platforms to realize operational cost efficiencies are done so at potentially high security costs if proper security policies and tools are not established prior to implementation. As if we didn’t need to state the obvious, virtualization doesn’t make it any less likely that good people will do bad things.
