VMware vSphere Security Configuration Guide Archive
The vSphere Security Configuration Guide (SCG) is the baseline for security hardening of VMware vSphere itself, and the core of VMware security best practices. Started more than a decade ago as the VMware vSphere Security Hardening Guide, it has long served as guidance for vSphere Administrators looking to protect their infrastructure. This is an archive of hardening guidance for versions of vSphere past the end of their support.
This archive is for reference purposes only. VMware customers are strongly advised to run supported versions of products, patched to the latest versions. Guidance in this archive is no longer maintained and may not be appropriate any longer, given the evolution of security threats.
