NIST Releases Second Draft of Special Publication 800-125A, Security Recommendations for Hypervisor Deployment
September 14, 2017

NIST is soliciting public comments for this draft version of the document Security Recommendations for Hypervisor Deployment.  The security recommendations in this version are expressions of counter measures for obtaining assurance against exploitation of threats to five baseline functions of the hypervisor and are therefore agnostic to the architecture of the hypervisor platform. Protection measures that are common to all server class software and its hosting environment have been removed in this version since they are addressed in other NIST documents.

The comment period for this draft closes on: October 6, 2017.

To learn more about this draft SP, please see Draft SP 800-125A.
