Virtual Machines: Security Requirements

Virtual Machines:  Security Requirements

In this lesson we examine what the Security Requirements are for a virtual environment.

We examine both physical and software security solutions and really demonstrate how deploying the same type of security practices that are used for a physical network apply to a virtual network as well to assure the connections are managed securely and thoroughly.

We discuss security for the VM Host machines and how it’s a single point of failure and discuss its impact if not adequately secured both physically and through the use of software and configurations.

Malicious code, malware and other security concerns are examined for their ability to exploit weaknesses in the Hypervisor and you’ll learn examples of those to be aware of.
