Symantec, Intel work on microchip-level VM security

August 15, 2007 (Reuters) -- Symantec Corp and Intel Corp are jointly developing security products that could be built into tiny computer microprocessors, Symantec Vice President Rowan Trollope said on Tuesday.

The program, dubbed Project Hood, is part of an effort by both companies to expand their use of virtualization technology, or using software to replicate entire computer systems.

They are developing software security "appliances" that would work with virtualization technology that Intel is already incorporating into its computer chips, Trollope said.
