Now this is something I want to see.......
Today, RSA integrates with VMware in an couple of what I would call "useful but not earth-shattering" points - you can integrate envision authentication with Virtual Center and it also integrates with VDM 2.1 and VMware View Manager for hardened authentication.
But, with VMware as mission-critical as it is, security focus is getting strong. At our recent Quarterly Technology Review, there were LOTS of really cool ideas where to go next, and ideas I would consider earth-shattering, but are so fuzzy at this point, there's no point in going on about it. Let us do some more work, and then I'll talk about it again.
Now - The RSA conference is pretty cool, and this is an example of security moving to the forefront.
"In this verbal cage match session, two well known critics of virtualization security take on two virtualization company CTOs as they spar over how best to secure virtualization platforms: who should be responsible for securing it, and how that ultimately impacts customers and attackers. We have Hoff and Skoudis versus Crosby and Herrod. Refereeing will be respected analyst, Antonopoulos."
