Mover to Host Intrusion Prevention for better support
3 Host IPS 8.0 for Linux is not supported and will not run on virtual systems that run Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Oracle Virtualization using paravirtualization (PV). Intel Security has not tested Host IPS on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Oracle Virtualization virtualized environments.
Intel Security has encountered several instances of Host IPS successfully running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Oracle Virtualization using Hardware Virtual Machine (HVM). Host IPS will be supported on these platforms only if all of the following conditions are met:
- The VM runs a standard supported version of the OS as listed in KB70778.
- You can replicate any issues encountered on a standard supported (non-virtualized) OS.
- Amazon Web Services (AWS) / Oracle Virtualization Virtualized Environments uses Hardware Virtual Machine (HVM).
Perhaps this helps.
Thank you, This is information I was looking for.
FYI on upcoming HIP 8.0 Patch 6 for Linux.
Paravirtual Guest Support
Paravirtual “xen” guests are supported and therefore can be installed on Amazon instances.
Previous releases of Host IPS did not work on Paravirtual Environment like Amazon Cloud and Environments running Linux XEN kernel, and are now supported with the Host IPS 8.0.0 Patch 6 for Linux release.
