Easy and effortless virtual machine encryption for vSphere 6.5

While encryption of virtual machines has been happening for many years, it hasn’t gained much in popularity because of the impact on performance and operational challenges. With the announcement of vSphere 6.5, VM encryption is done at the hypervisor level, “beneath” the virtual machine.

With this approach VMware has addressed many security and policy issues, including implementing encryption as a policy, resulting in simplified administration and operational overhead.

In order to take advantage of these new VMware encryption features, organizations using vSphere must use an external key manager to enable encryption. VMware has given flexibility to its customers by supporting the key management interoperability standard KMIP 1.1. This approach ensures VM keys do not persist in vCenter and lessens enterprise security attack vectors.
