VMware Communities Podcast – Hardening Guide and secure virtual appliances

Tomorrow, November 6th, I’ll be hosting the VMware Communities Roundtable Podcast! We’ll be talking about the recently released vSphere 5.5 Hardening Guide and the massive amount of work that’s been done to secure VMware virtual appliances!

Joining me will be Simon Mijolovic (we just call him “Simon”), the Staff Program Manager for virtual appliance security and Greg Murray, Product Manager for, among many things, virtual appliances at VMware.

Simon will be going over the changes that were made to make our virtual appliances secure out of the box (91-95% DISA STIG compliant!).

Greg will be there to gather feedback on what YOU want to see out of our virtual appliances. Do NOT miss this opportunity to be heard by the folks that can do something about it!

I’m not sure what John Troyer @jtroyer was thinking when he handed me the keys to his baby for the day but I’m sure it will be fun and interesting! I hope you can join us whether it’s live on Talkshoe or later as a downloaded podcast!

A wrap-up of the podcast will be located on the podcast archives within a few days.

I’m looking forward to talking with many of you tomorrow!
