Xen and Client Virtualization: the case of XenClient XT

This talk will discuss the challenges of client virtualization and introduce at a technical level XenClient XT, a security-oriented client virtualization product by Citrix. By describing XenClient XT architecture and features, it will be shown how the unique Xen's design and its support for modern x86 platform hardware can increase security and isolation among VMs.

Disaggregation of services provided by the platform will be a key of this talk. It will also be shown how third party software components can provide services to VMs in a secure and controlled way.
