Disposable Virtual Machines

Virtualization is not merely for businesses trying to wrench the last iota of efficiency from their infrastructure. Virtual machines can also be used to enhance the home computing security.

In many households, there is rightly concern about security, particularly when a computer is shared by several members of the family. Friends and visitors complicate the problem. Knoppix and similar LiveCD Linux systems are one solution; but they have limitations. Disposable virtual machines are a similar solution, one that provides a full WindowsTM environment, even as Administrator, without compromising the integrity of the underlying hardware. With disposable virtual machines, one can browse a suspect www site without endangering one's electronic banking.

This session will demonstrate how disposable virtual machines can be used in a home setting.
