Securing the Administration of Virtualization
In this report, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) describes a systematic approach to securing the administration of virtualized systems, based on the ISO 27000-series "Plan - Do - Check - Act" philosophy. While emerging aspects of endpoint virtualization are discussed, the primary focus is on the administration of virtualization in the data center, where the bulk of today’s concerns may be found.
Guidance on securing the administration of VMware--one of the most prevalent names in virtualization--and the use of the tools and technologies of EMC and its Security Division, RSA, are highlighted as primary examples. Readers should gain an enhanced awareness of the essential capabilities required for the secure administration of virtualization, with reference to technology-specific guidance such as VMware’s Security Hardening publications offered for more detailed information.
