Video and slides available for "Security in QEMU"

I gave a talk about security in QEMU at KVM Forum 2018. It covers the architecture of QEMU and focusses on the attack surfaces that are exposed to guests. I hope it will be useful to anyone auditing or writing device emulation code. It also describes the key design principles for isolating the QEMU process and limiting the damage that can be done if a guest escapes.

The video of the talk is now available:

The slides are available here (PDF).
