Almost 7 months after the release of vSphere 4.0 (and its Update 1), VMware finally publishes a Hardening Guide that can be used to secure every aspect of the virtual infrastucture.

It’s not the final version of the document but just the first, public draft (internally called Rev B). Nonetheless every VMware administrator is highly encouraged to download and check it.

The guide is divided in five sections (excluding the introduction):

  • Virtual Machines
  • Host
  • vNetwork
  • vCenter
  • Console OS (for ESX)

VMware didn’t provide a timeframe for the final release but welcomes feedbacks from the community.
