Towards a work setup on a hardened host and doing everything in VMs

Posted by jpluimers on 2023/04/21

SwiftOnSecurity posted this interesting tweet in 2021: [Archive] SwiftOnSecurity on Twitter: “Lenovo P1 Gen3 with 12core Xeon, 64GB RAM, two 1TB M.2 SSDs. Running Windows Server 2022 with the Hyper-V role. All hardening applied to host OS, almost nothing happens here except managing guest VMs. On the second SSD I then have Win10 VMs joined to the corporate domain.” / Twitter.

I wonder if a similar setup can be done using an Apple M1 based machine as host and running all work in virtual machines.

Swift had some issues getting cameras and microphones to work: [Archive] SwiftOnSecurity on Twitter: “The problem here is Teams. If I want to pass through my webcam and microphone that could get a bit dicey, despite HyperV Enhanced Session being essentially an RDP session. For now I’m using my phone for Teams microphone. Also I’m not sure how well thermal management will work….” / Twitter

This resulted in some answers and interesting links:
