This talk will demonstrate why it is virtually impossible to secure virtual machines implementations properly. In the talk I will try to give an overview of the basics of hardware virtualization technology, the existing attack techniques against virtualization and also explain why it is such a complex problem to create a secure hypervisor. The talk will focus on the low level interfaces and how it affects all aspects of computer platform security. I will also try to review a few interesting Erratas at the end of the talk.
