coondoggie writes "While conventional wisdom says virtualized environments and public clouds create massive security headaches, the godfather of Xen, the open source hypervisor, says virtualization actually holds a key to better security. Isolation — the ability to restrict what computing goes on in a given context — is a fundamental characteristic of virtualization that can be exploited to improve trustworthiness of processes on a physical system even if other processes have been compromised, says Simon Crosby, a creator of Xen and a founder of startup Bromium, which is looking to use Xen features to boost security."
