Microsoft Hyper-V Security Best Practices

— Use a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 for the management operating system.
— Do not run any applications in the management operating system—run all applications on virtual machines.
— Use the security level of your virtual machines to determine the security level of your management operating system.
— Do not give virtual machine administrators permissions on the management operating system.
— Ensure that virtual machines are fully updated before they are deployed in a production environment.
— Ensure integration services are installed on virtual machines.
— Use a dedicated network adapter for the management operating system of the virtualization server.
