Don't Bloat The Hypervisor! What to Know About Introspection

"Don't bloat the hypervisor" is the rallying cry for some security professionals worried about system virtualization security. Worried that access to APIs for security needs could end up making the same mistake with hypervisors that was made earlier with operating systems - bloat. And the larger a system is, whether it is the code base for a hypervisor or an operating system, the more difficult it is to secure. Other security professionals say that the lack of security capabilities inherent in hypervisors limits necessary tasks, such as forensics. This group argues that introspection capabilities are critical for actually securing virtualization.

This presentation will examine both sides of the introspection debate, and what the possible implications of it are for information security practitioners trying to secure virtualized environments.
