Security and Virtualization


I've been a big proponent of virtualization over the last couple of years, but I'd never stopped to think how it changed the nature of computer security. This week on the Technometria podcast, I interviewed Greg Ness about security in virtualized environments. It turns out there are things that virtualization makes more difficult, but the ability to run a privileged "security shield" on the hypervisor presents a new, potent weapon in the fight for more secure enterprise computing. I found the conversation fascinating.
