  10. 10. RED HAT ENTERPRISE VIRTUALIZATIONHYPERVISOR ● Standalone hypervisor ● Small footprint ● Customized spin of RHEL + KVM ● Just enough RHEL to run virtual machines ● Security hardened image ● Runs on all RHEL hardware ● with Intel VT/AMD-V CPUs ● Easy to install, configure and upgrade ● PXE boot, USB boot, CD or Hard drive10 RED HAT ENTERPRISE VIRTUALIZATION Update | Syed M Shaaf
  11. 11. SECURITY RHEV inherits the security features of Linux and RHEL ● Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the basis of the RHEV 3.x Hypervisor, achieved Common Criteria Certification at Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+ on 10/29/2012 ● SELinux security policy infrastructure ● Provides protection and isolation for virtual machines and host ● Compromised virtual machine cannot access other VMs or host sVirt Project ● Sub-project of NSAs SELinux community. Provides “hardened” hypervisor. ● Multi-level security. Isolate guests ● Contain hypervisor breaches11 RED HAT ENTERPRISE VIRTUALIZATION Update | Syed M Shaaf
  12. 12. Security - SELinux to the rescue SELinux is all about labeling ● Processes get labels – virtual machines with KVM are processes ● Files and devices get labels – virtual images are stored on files and devices ● Rules control how process labels interact with file labels and other process labels ● The kernel enforces these rules12 RED HAT ENTERPRISE VIRTUALIZATION Update | Syed M Shaaf
  13. 13. KVM guests are processes, so we can confinethem like processes13 RED HAT ENTERPRISE VIRTUALIZATION Update | Syed M Shaaf
