Virtualization: Are you secure enough?

Presented by

Edward Haletkey, President | AstroArch Consulting

About this talk

Virtualization has become a part of every system administrators daily lives. With that essential part of the infrastructure now becoming a staple it is easy to loose sight of the security aspects of the virtual environment. Virtualization solutions like VMWare for example are a very secure environment, although they are not secure out of the box. What most System administrators do not know is that if you were to install VMWare ESX taking all of the defaults an attacker would be able to steal the passwords and other critical information in less than 5 minutes given that they were in that same local environment. This session aims to shed some light on common exploits in virtualization environment. It is presented by Tim Pierson, a contribution author to the well received book on Securing your Virutual Environment.
