Summary : Despite shiny new stickers on the boxes of our favorite security vendors' products that advertise "virtualization ready!" or the hordes of new startups emerging from stealth decrying the second coming of security, there exists the gritty failed reality of attempting to replicate complex network and security topologies in virtualized environments.
This talk will clearly demonstrate that unless we radically rethink our approach, the virtualization security apocalypse is nigh! This talk will focus on virtualizing security; from virtualization-enabled chipsets to the hypervisor to the VM's, we'll explore the real issues that exist today as well as those that are coming that aren't being discussed or planned for.
