This video provides a description of the advantages of virtual machine encryption, and how it's used in vSphere 6.5.
- If you think about it, one of the things…that makes VMs so easy to use…could also be a security risk,…and that's the fact that VMs are 100% software.…That means that if you have a trusted administrator…who needs to have access to the VMs,…needs to be able to manage them,…needs to be able to get to their files,…but it turns out that they shouldn't be so trusted,…then they could actually make a copy…of the VMDK of the VM, the virtual disk,…or maybe even the whole VM,…and take that off-site, stealing your data.…
So how do I prevent that from happening?…Well, I can encrypt the virtual machine files.…And if I encrypt the virtual machine files,…then only the ones who have the key…will actually be able to copy the files,…will actually be able to do certain functions…with the files.…So it's like I'm going to take a key that opens a safe,…and put into another safe…and only certain people are going to be able…to have access to that.…
And then you just make sure…that only the administrators that you can implicitly trust…would have access to the keys.…
