Virtualization Security – September 24, 2008

Topic: Virtualization Security
Speaker: Robert Beggs
Virtualization, which allows users to run multiple operating systems on a single physical box, can reduce costs and improve network manageability. From a security perspective, this simplified management can enhance system security, and virtualized systems are supporting security in roles such as secure software development, malware analysis, and disaster recovery

But what are the risks of putting virtual systems into your production network? This seminar will review the perceived, and real, risks that you should consider before deploying a virtual environment. Technical attacks, such as attacks against the hypervisor layer, and organizational and operational issues will be critically examined. We’ll conclude with a review of the practical steps that an organization can take to mitigate the security challenges of virtualization
