- No sniffing, as there are no cables, switches and routers
- No spoofing, as the VNICs and Virtual Media Address Controls (VMACs) are configured from zManager on the Hardware Management Console (HMC) only, invisible to the outside world and new MACs will not be recognised unless you can login to zManager on the HMC.
- Vastly lower network latency (down from,say, 80 microseconds to 10)
Impressive stuff. If we're concerned about network security, zEnterprise looks to have addressed some serious concerns pretty impressively.
In other news, I've a new post on my InfoSec general blog, PracticallySecure, linking to some controversial views on compliance you might enjoy.
