Diversity in application and continual development of server virtualization is at its peak today, and is anticipated to grow further in the approaching future. Most modern organizations have by now recognized the economic and functional advantage of using virtual servers. Technical ease of operation and organization provided by virtualization highly impresses technical administrators. This has led to wide employment of virtualization in various platforms such as networks, desktops and web applications. To add to this, advantages of virtualization from the security point of view are innumerable. These include controlling multiple systems from centralized points, robustness and stability of business, facilities for logging and auditing in more complicated infrastructure, and transparent access control for different roles. It is, however, just as noteworthy that merits of virtualization are accompanied by diverse kinds of vulnerabilities. A large number of potential attacks and exploitation methodologies have recently been devised, and this calls for inculcation of skills in employees, which they can employ to understand, demonstrate and evade such risks.


Today on the Internet there are extensive hacking tools available and there are many evils eyes present 24 X 7 waiting to intrude your systems. Hacker tools, techniques, exploits and Incident are basically a set of techniques and tools that are meant to protect and counter systems from hacking and unauthorized use. To counter the evil intruders or hackers, hacking tools and techniques are used by professionals to eliminate the threats. The institute is offering its web based Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits and Incident Certification to all the major locations in the country as well as to far distant locations all over the globe.

This virtualization and private cloud security online course deeply instills numerous fundamentals and controlling concepts of configuration in the system administration, operation and security team, intricately enough for effective operation. Virtualization methodology in relation to storage and network areas should be planned with elaborate planning as far as permissions, access, and conventional security controls are concerned. Virtualization technologies are also being implemented in clouds which provide services from a virtualized platform used by several systems which is taught in this Virtualization and private cloud security online training. Both private and hybrid clouds require appropriate management, procedures and policies for ensuring security in these services. Many adaptations in the virtualization framework will need to be introduced to make use of advantages offered by virtualization without compromising private cloud security. This virtualization and private cloud security training does not require any prerequisites from the students' end.


Architecture and Design of Virtualization Security

  • Components and architectures in virtualization
  • Classification of virtualization: desktop, server, applications, etc.
  • VMWare, Citrix Xen and Microsoft Hyper-V, and their Hypervisor lockdown controls
  • Design cases in virtual networks, with advantages and disadvantages
  • Virtualization in switches and port groups, and respective security methods
  • Available virtual switches (open-source and commercial), and respective configuration
  • Techniques for segmentation, like VLANs and PVLANs
  • Techniques for security configuration in virtual machine (converging over VMWare VMX files)

Security in Virtualization and Private Cloud Framework:

  • Methodologies for security and design of storage
  • Locking down management clients and servers for XenServer, vCenter and Microsoft SCVMM
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) security and design
  • Use cases for security of VDI
  • Architecture for security of Private Cloud
  • Configuring security of components in private cloud
  • Different models in private cloud and respective security applications
  • Virtual firewalls and access control in networks
  • Virtual firewalls available commercially and open-source
  • Intrusion detection system design for virtual framework and private cloud
  • Developing traffic analysis and promiscuous interface in virtual infrastructure
  • Virtualization through host-based IDS/IPS

Offence and Defense in Virtualization - I:

  • Virtualization and cloud attack models
  • Cycles in penetration testing, converging over virtual and cloud platforms
  • Different kinds of attacks and exploits in virtualization infrastructure
  • Modification of vulnerability management methodology and scanning techniques for virtualization infrastructure
  • Using attack frameworks including Virtualization Assessment Toolkit (VASTO) for exploitation
  • Intrusion detection tools and procedures in virtual environments and their implementation
  • Types of logos and logging essential identification of live events and attacks in virtual and cloud architecture

Offence and Defense in Virtualization - II:

  • Functionality of anti-malware tools in virtual and cloud framework
  • Types of modern tools and techniques used for anti-malware processes in virtual and cloud framework
  • Pulling packet data and Netflow for assessment in virtual framework
  • Use of forensic tools and processes in virtual environment

Taking a look at the unprecedented growth that virtualization infrastructure has witnessed in recent years, it becomes apparent how essential it is for technical professionals such as security personnel and system administrators to be educated in the manner in which this framework is developing. Traditional methods of data and system security are rendered practically ineffective in such a scenario when scope of reach of data has by far maximized. With the increasing popularity of private and hybrid clouds in organizations, security architecture needs to be suitably updated to a great extent.

This course is meant to enable professionals in the field of development, Information Technology, security and auditing become familiar with alterations occurring in modern technological infrastructure and methods to effectively plan and deal with security issues that arise. Virtualization and private cloud security training is best suited for professionals who seek a career in virtualization and private cloud security, system administration, network administration, technical consultation, and auditing.
