Supporting protected computing on IBM Power Architecture
This article describes the changes to the IBM Power Architecture that can be used to provide enhanced protection of virtual machines from other software running on the same system. A new higher privilege mode called Ultravisor mode is being introduced, along with the concept of secure virtual machines (SVMs). This mode is supported by the Protected Execution Ultravisor which will be open sourced. An SVM is protected at rest, when transmitted over a network as a file, and while executing. In this article, we discuss the impact of this new architecture for SVMs. There is near-zero impact on VMs.

Accelerate the path to PCI DSS data compliance using IBM Guardium
This article gives you a step-by-step overview of using the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) accelerator that is included with the standard IBM Guardium data security and protection solution. The PCI DSS is a set of technical and operational requirements designed to protect cardholder data and applies to all organizations who store, process, use, or transmit cardholder data. Failure to comply can mean loss of privileges, stiff fines, and, in the case of a data breach, severe loss of consumer confidence in your brand or services. The IBM Guardium accelerator helps guide you through the process of complying with parts of the standard using predefined policies, reports, group definitions, and more.

Monitor network bandwidth usage and analyze network traffic in the IBM AIX server using ProbeVue
This article helps users to monitor network bandwidth and analyze network traffic in an IBM AIX server using ProbeVue. This provides users with a near real time view of what is happening in their network for a user-specified time interval or when a user specified event occurs. This takes very less time to diagnose certain network issues compared to traditional tools such as IPTRACE and TCPDUMP. This is because ProbeVue provides only the data requested by the user instead of providing the entire data, which requires a lot of time to analyze and diagnose a specific problem.

OpenPOWER secure and trusted boot, Part 2: Protecting system firmware with OpenPOWER secure boot
Protection of system firmware against malicious attack is paramount to server security. If an attacker is able to inject malicious code at the firmware level, no security measure at the operating system level can fully guarantee the trust of the system. IBM OpenPOWER servers support secure boot of system firmware to ensure the system boots only authorized firmware. When the system boots, each firmware component is verified against a cryptographic signature and integrity-checked against a secure hash of the component. If any check fails, secure boot prevents the system from booting until the problem is corrected.
