Ye olde blog gets pinged quite a lot with searches and search engine redirects for folks looking for basic virtualization and virtualized security information.
I had to drum up a basic high-level virtualization security presentation for the ISSA Charlotte Metro gathering back in April and I thought I may as well post it.
It's in .PDF format. If you want it in .PPT or Keynote, let me know, I'll be glad to send it to you. If it's useful or you need some explanation regarding the visual slides, please get back to me and I'll be more than glad to address anything you want. I had 45 minutes to highlight how folks were and might deal with "securing virtualization by virtualizing security."
Yes, some of it is an ad for the company I used to work for who specializes in virtualized security service layers (Crossbeam) but I'm sure you can see how it is relevant in the preso. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll copy/paste the text and declare your own brilliance. Here's the summary slide so those of you who haven't downloaded this yet will know the sheer genius you will be missing if you don't:
At any rate, it's not earth shattering but does a decent job at the high level of indicating some of the elements regarding virtualized security.
I apologize for the individual animation slide page build-ups. I'll re-upload without them when I can get around to it. (Ed: Done. I also uploaded the correct version ;)
Here's the PDF.
11pm EST -- 5.5 hours later 1:45pm EST the next day, you lot have downloaded this over 150 380 times. Since there are no comments, it's either the biggest piece of crap I've ever produced or you are all just so awe stricken you are unable to type. Newby, you are not allowed to respond to this rhetorical question...)
