Hacking the Hypervisor

Presented by

Joshua Pennell, Founder and President, IOActive, Inc.

About this talk

Clearly not all virtualization is the same. Different Clouds have assembled their own flavors that range from “full emulation” to “bare metal.” From his popular Black Hat presentation, IOActive’s Joshua Pennell will discuss the approaches from the most popular virtualization technologies for how the virtual machine will function and how the virtual hardware that is exposed can be used. These approaches have security implications for companies that are leveraging these cloud architectures for ubiquitous storage and access of their sensitive data and applications. Josh will discuss the virtualization technologies, the security trade-offs of each, and what the past security failures will mean to enterprises looking to invest their data to the cloud.
