This discussion focuses on implementing security controls to secure an enterprise virtualization platform.
In this scenario, you are a security engineer for a company where 50% of the servers are virtualized, 25% are physical servers acting as hypervisors, and 25% of the servers are stand-alone physical machines. Write one paragraph showing in-depth technical detail for each of the following:
- Explain how you would assess the operating system requirements for virtualization if the organization wanted to virtualize 25% of physical stand-alone servers.
- Describe how you would implement controls to secure guest-to-host interaction between the virtualized operating systems and their hypervisors.
- Choose a project management methodology you would use to manage the analysis, planning, and implementation of the virtualization project.
After your initial post, review the posts of several students and respond constructively to the posts of two of your peers who took different approaches than you did.
In your response post, respectfully identify which portion of the response you have a different opinion on and explain why you took a different approach. Ask any clarifying questions about anything you did not understand in their post.
