Secure Virtualization: Much Ado About Next To Nothing?


During a podium discussion as part of security conference RSA Conference 2009, which continues until Friday, controversial virtualization expert Christopher Hoff made clear that IT professionals are, in practice, all too frequently overcomplicating the development of security concepts for virtualized environments. In particular, the mobile virtual machine (VM) function (‘VMotion’ at market leader VMware), which is promoted mantra-like by vendors, is, according to Hoff, barely used in normal everyday business.

These contentions found support among the audience, of whom 85 per cent use VMware hypervisors, but only a handful use VMotion. This prompted Hoff and co-panellist David Shackleford, Chief Security Officer at Configuresoft to advise against worrying too much about the complexity portended by the continuous use of VMotion, since the tool would more than likely never be used.
