LFNW: Introduction to the Advanced Security Features of the Xen Project Hypervisor
The Xen Project team produces a mature, enterprise-grade virtualization technology featuring many advanced and unique security features. For this reason, it's the hypervisor of choice for multiple security-sensitive government agencies. However, while much of the security of Xen Project software is inherent in its design, many of the advanced security features, such as stub domains, driver domains, and Xen Security Modules (XSM), are not enabled by default. This session will describe many of the advanced security features of the software which can be used in either a traditional virtualization environment or a cloud.
