I have a CentOS 6 server that I'd like to modify and I want opinions on the security risks involved.
The host is CentOS local file server
with ssh (non-default port, no root login, gpg key validation) and samba to backup and share common files for 2 other end devices.
On this host I want to create a guest KVM CentOS web server
and isolate it as much as possible from the host, as per http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoce...curity_pdf.pdf
this includes separate NICs for guest kvm and host
How risky is this to security of the host fileserver in running a guest kvm web server?
I don't want to be running two separate computers and using up all of that electricity, but I want to be secure. This is for personal use, not an "enterprise" environment, but at the same time, I want to make sure I have all vectors of attack covered as much as is possible.
