Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: VMware Enhance Server Security
Audience and Purpose
This paper clarifies secure cloud environment deployment and operation. We build a cloud with the use of a technology preview version of VMware vCenter Server*, VMware vSphere Hypervisor*, Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series-based server platforms, and a plug-in designed to interface with Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) to provide platform attestation in the cloud.
We tailored this paper to air security administrators who are responsible for design, implementation, validation, and utilization of cloud implementations. We describe details on the hardware configuration, software configuration and results from the implantation of specific test cases that demonstrate basic operational capabilities.
This document should complement product documentation and is provided as a starting point for the actual development of an enterprise cloud.
