VBS and compatibility with other hypervisor vendors.

Regular Visitor

Hello Microsoft Security, thanks a lot for opening this board.

 

Microsoft brought many nice security features in Windows 10: (Credential guard , Device guard, etc ...).

 

I tried to look at the documentation but could not find it. Is those features will be enabled by default ? on all version of Windows ? or we need to enable it ? That is the first question.

 

The second question is: once these features are enabled, which require Hyper-V role to be on. VMWare Workstation or VirtualBox does not work anymore. Does this mean, that we cannot use other hypervisors when such security features are enabled ? Is that because Hyper-V does not support nesting other hypervisor and this may be supported in the future ? Will Microsoft allow us to nest Hyper-V inside our own hypervisor ?

 

Thanks a lot again.
