Is it possible in vmware 6 to encrypt VMs on vm level nativly, without 3rd party tools ? I know I can encrypt on OS level but I want to be secure in case vm file is stolen/copied, etc...
MS implement quite nice feature in newest hyper-v; Guarded fabric and shielded VMs. Is it possible to do something similar in vmware solution (without 3rd poarty tools) ?
Many thanks in advance!
vSphere 6 currently does not offer any form of storage or VM-level encryption features. This might change with a future release (try to get in the beta program), but at the moment you only have two options:
1. Encryption at the physical array/disk level
2. Encryption inside the Guest OS
