X86 virutalization not ready for mission-critical apps

X86 virtualization is not ready for highly regulated, mission-critical applications, IBM security expert Joshua Corman argued at Interop Las Vegas this week.

In addition to security threats to the hypervisor and the virtual machines it controls, virtualization makes it difficult to meet strict regulatory requirements such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Corman told attendees in a session on virtualization.

:If you have a choice, I highly recommend you don・t adopt virtualization for any regulated project,; said Corman, who is principal security strategist for IBM・s Internet Security Systems division. If you・re going to make mistakes, it・s better to do so on less critical systems.
