Virtualization security: So far nothing
by w1ld at 11:45 pm EST, Jan 20, 2009

In April 2004 I wrote my first article on the topic of virtualization security. I was trying to bring attention to the security aspects of this "new" technology that was getting quite a bit of hype at the time. The hope was that this time security would not be an afterthought, that we would reverse the equine-escape/egress-closure sequence. The naiveté of youth!
Once again, the answer surprised us (though perhaps it shouldn't). Only 9.6% of participants are deploying any security tools specially designed to deal with virtualization. Another 21.2% expect to do so within the next three years. A whopping 69.3%, though, have no plans at all to do anything specifically aimed at securing their virtual environments.
