The next Live Virtual Class (LVC) is scheduled for Wednesday - October 18, 2017.
Topic: What It Means to Measure Your z/VM Security
Abstract: What does it mean for an operating system, application, or hypervisor to be "secure" or "securable"? What do certifications like the Common Criteria and FIPS 140-2 prove (and not prove) about your software? If someone comes around with a clipboard asking for proof that your system is secure, do you know how to provide it? And if a new vulnerability with a fancy logo blows up on social media, do you know where to go to find out if your IBM Z system is impacted? This session explores the security lifecycle to explain the "how" and "why" of end-to-end security management. z/VM will be used as the illustrative example, but the lessons also apply to Linux on z and the other IBM Z operating systems. Topics will include security certifications for the various levels of z/VM, the security controls related to the most common industry regulations, and an exploration of security-related service for z/VM.
