Starting with Windows Server version 1709, sample code integrity policies are included with Windows at C:\Windows\schemas\CodeIntegrity\ExamplePolicies. You buy a new host and import the VM directly from the SOFS cluster, only to learn that you can’t turn it on. An expired certificate still matches perfectly to whatever it signed and/or encrypted, so I see no reason why the VMs wouldn’t still work. Just remember that anyone with administrative access to the host has access to the certificate. Without the Host Guardian Service being fully configured, there is a limit to the usefulness of Shielded VMs. Using CERTUTIL.EXE is the fastest and safest way to export certificates. Ignorance on this topic could easily leave you with virtual machines whose data you cannot access! https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/virtualization/guarded-fabric-shielded-vm/guarded-fabric-and-shielded-vms-top-node, https://gist.github.com/derrickorama/7b08298b657048660293. Realistically, nothing bad will happen when the certificate expires. Just got ““The key protector could not be unwrapped”. LSVMPREP- Prepares the image for shielding 2. Please note: If you’re not already a member on the Dojo Forums you will create a new account and receive an activation email. Hyper V » Security » Hyper-V 2016 Shielded Virtual Machines on Stand-Alone Hosts. Reinstalled our Hyper-V host and was unaware of this issue. Thomas. You said in introduction “Hyper-V host that is not a member of a cluster”. In order for attestation to understand what is and is not healthy, you must capture the following artifacts: Code integrity policy (an allowlist of allowed binaries). The v1 attestation method used in Windows Server 2016 allowed you to override this safety check by specifying the -Force flag when you run Add-HgsAttestationTpmHost or other TPM attestation cmdlets to capture the artifacts. That’s a good thing, because otherwise you’d never be able to restore them after a host failure. We had assumed that as long as we had the Bitlocker keys we could always restore it even if the TPM wasn’t available but we were wrong. If you look at any datacenter today, virtualization is a key element. 1. Required fields are marked *, Yes, I would like to receive new blog posts by email. Click. An ISO image for one of the supported Linux shielded VM OSes: 3.1. “Standalone” can apply to non-domain-joined hosts and domain-joined hosts that are not members of a cluster. With HGS, there’s independent “attestation” that a host is allowed to run a particular virtual machine because the signature on the VM and the signing certificate will match up and, most importantly, the signing certificate was issued by someone else. You can choose to add encryption explicitly for the virtual machine … Windows Server 2016 Guarded Fabric 2. The MMC snap-in all but encourages you to do some very silly things, so I would recommend that you use the certutil instructions above instead. Given that I export the certificates and private key and import it on the other Hyper-V cluster member, would it work in a cluster? A few of the hosted VMs have vTPM enabled (2016 Servers) Today my vTPM VMs will no longer start: 'The virtual Machine … Mimikatz can be used to bypass the non-exportable restriction: You will need to edit this file later to enforce the CI policy or merge in changes from future updates made to the system. This feature is most useful when combined with the next. Provide the binary file (in this example, HW1CodeIntegrity_enforced.p7b) to the HGS administrator. A host can only attest if all artifacts (EKPub + TPM baseline + CI Policy) use the same version of attestation. If your TPM is not in the Ready state, you will need to initialize it and set its ownership. Step 6: Creating a shielded VM. After extensive security review, we enabled the support of VMConnect to shielded VM without lower the security assurance. Along the way, I have achieved a number of Microsoft certifications and was a Microsoft Certified Trainer for four years. Shielded VMs is a set of technologies, that have the same goal – protect tenant secrets from service provider technical staff (aka “rogue admins”) or from hackers, that got elevated rights inside service … Since the HGS cluster is a critical piece in the shielded VM solution, Microsoft has provided an enhancement to easily incorporate a backup for the HGS URLs so that even if the primary HGS server is unresponsive, the Hyper-V guarded hosts are able to attest and launch the shielded VMs without … New software written by the same publisher can also be installed on the server without changing the CI policy. You could try it out by forcing your clock 10 years into the future. So, really, basic due diligence. Basically, it exhibits this behavior as a protection mechanism for the virtual TPM. A true self-signed certificate is signed and issued by a host that is not a valid certificate authority and is only used by that host. You specify the exact code integrity policies you trust by adding them to HGS. V2 attestation is tried first, and if that fails, v1 attestation is used. First published on TECHNET on Dec 14, 2017 Whenever I want to replace or reinstall a system which is used to run virtual machines with a virtual trusted platform module (vTPM), I've been facing a challenge: For hosts that are not part of a guarded fabric , the new system does need to be authorized to run the VM… But, could you please guide me step by step to configure the Lab without VMM and Azure. Thanks, The primary error is “The key protector could not be unwrapped. Using a properly configured HGS is better, but it is not required. I have worked in the information technology field since 1998. As far as we were concerned this wasn’t a ‘shielded’ VM. Standalone mode is possible. The -Force flag does not work with v2 attestation. Marking private key not exportable does buy much more security. Use right-click to paste the serial number when you come to that point: Use the mouse to highlight the second serial number, which should be for the signing certificate, then press [Enter] to copy it to the clipboard. At an elevated command prompt, type: You’ll be presented with a dialog that shows the Shielded VM Encryption Certificate. What you can do, if you’ve got an extremely solid protection plan, is export, delete, and re-import the certificate without marking the private key as exportable. HGS01: This is a standalone HGS Server that will be unclustered because this is a test environment. Let’s see how to implement Shielded VMs in a test environment. In case of hardware based attestation TPM 2.0 is mandatory for Guarded Hosts, AD … This article gives me an Idea what to test in the LABs. Malware and other executables outside the trusted executables are prevented from running. If you must use the UI: If you ever need to recover these certificates, I would again recommend using certutil.exe instead. Shielded VMs, or Shielded Virtual Machines, are a security feature introduced in Windows Server 2016 for protecting Hyper-V Generation 2 virtual machines (VMs) from unauthorized access or tampering.. Hyper-V Shielded VMs are protected through a combination of Secure Boot, BitLocker encryption, Virtual Trusted Platform Module (TPM… If you are not backing up the management operating system, then you need a copy of these keys. Use a "reference host" again. I am struggling to setup the LAB for testing the Shielded VMs. I didn’t test, so I don’t know. There will not be any conflict with any certificates that are already there. In the HGS domain, copy the TCGlog file to an HGS server and run the following command. Cannot modify the selected security settings of virtual machine ‘XXXXX’ without a valid key protector configured. The requirements for using Shielded Virtual Machines are: That’s it. Recall that a key protector defines on which guarded fabrics a shielded VM … The IP Address is 10.0.0.4. This means if you need to register a TPM identifier by using v1 attestation, you need to also specify the -PolicyVersion v1 flag to use v1 attestation when you capture the TPM baseline and create the CI policy. The CERTUTIL.EXE program is available on any system, including those without a GUI. Imagine a situation in which you have a single, non-clustered host with a guest on a Scale Out File Server cluster and you enable the Shielded VM feature. trusted TPM root certificates have been added, Deploy code integrity policies: policy rules and file rules, This information is unique to each Hyper-V host, This is applicable to all Hyper-V hosts that run on the same class of hardware, This is applicable to all Hyper-V hosts that share common hardware and software. Go the virtual machine … The Hyper-V host itself must be running Windows Server 2016. Provide the TPM baseline (TCGlog file) to the HGS administrator. The IP Address is 10.0.0.6 2. Fortunately we had a backup that I could restore to a temporary server to retrieve the certificates (which are now safely backed up! I’ll have to play with that when I start doing my more indepth testing. Generation 1 VMs cannot be shielded. Fortunately we have backups of the host that we could get the certificates from but I can see this tripping up a lot of people who don’t fully test their disaster recovery. For , substitute the unique host name with something suitable to identify this host - this can be its hostname or the name used by a fabric inventory service (if available). Otherwise, it couldn’t use it to encrypt/decrypt things. VM Shielded Certificates with Serial Numbers. Shielded … Any kernel mode drivers that are non-compliant with the CI Policy may prevent the machine from starting up. You can also deploy the CI policy with Group Policy or System Center Virtual Machine Manager. Each guarded host must have a code integrity policy applied in order to run shielded VMs in TPM mode. You must update the Key Protector for that virtual machine to authorize the new host to run the virtual machine. I was just grateful for your blog and relieved I could get the certificates back from a backup. Use right-click to paste the serial number when you come to that point: Ensure that the PFX files that you created are moved to a SAFE place and that the password is SECURED! In the fabric domain, make sure the TPM on each host is ready for use - that is, the TPM is initialized and ownership obtained. So, it’s not really bypassing much of anything except a convenience checkbox. Step 2 – Enable Trusted Platform Module on Virtual Machine. This is not true. If the TPM baseline and CI policy were created by using v2 attestation and then later you need to add a guarded host without a TPM certificate, you need to re-create each artifact with the -PolicyVersion v1 flag. Unfortunately I wasn’t in the mood to play at the time as I was in the middle of reinstalling the VM host and this particular VM has all our data on it (hence the bitlocker). Secure your Office 365 data today using Altaro Office 365 Backup - the reliable and cost-effective mailbox backup, recovery and backup storage solution for companies and MSPs. The GUI still makes some dangerous suggestions and it takes much longer. Basically, the only way you can ever keep the private key safe is by never exporting it and by preventing unauthorized access to administrative accounts. A best practice is to name it after the make/model of your machine and any special software configuration running on it.For , specify the path and filename of the code integrity policy. We strongly recommend testing this configuration in your lab before enabling this feature. We are deliberately not trying to secure the private key because it needs to be moved to another system in order to perform the full encryption/decryption cycle necessary for shielded VMs. Without it, you would have no way to trust the integrity of the vTPM. Click More Choices and it will expand to show that certificate and the Shielded VM Signing Certificate: You can click either of the certificates in the bottom half of the dialog and it will update the information in the top half of the dialog. With virtual machines we’ve made it easier to deploy, manage, service and automate the infrastructure. You can open these certificates to view them. This connection refusal provides a small level of protection against snooping by a service provider’s employees, but does more against other tenants that might inadvertently have been granted a few too many privileges on the host. We will have some better articles on this subject in the future. They are literally the keys to your Shielded Virtual Machines. In a single host environment without a configured Host Guardian Service, these keys are created automatically immediately after you set the first virtual machine to be shielded. Apply the CI policy to all of your hosts (with identical hardware and software configuration) using the following commands: Be careful when applying CI policies to hosts and when updating any software on these machines. Even administrators can’t use VMConnect.exe to connect to a Shielded Virtual Machine. This article will discuss using Shielded Virtual Machines on a domain-joined Hyper-V host that is not a member of a cluster and is not governed by a Host Guardian Service. Attempting to connect results in a message that “You cannot connect to a shielded virtual machine using a Virtual Machine Connection. 1. Please use the Disk Management snap-in to make sure that the disk, partitions, and volumes are in a usable state.”. The BitLocker keys needed to boot the VM and decrypt the disks are protected by the shielded VM's virtual TPM using industry-proven technologies such as secure measured boot. Encryption keys are securely stored inside virtual TPM device, that moves when the VM moves to another host. EKpub is used by in various attestation methods such as TPM … A shielded VM … If this is still something that you’re concerned about 9 years and 11 months after shielding your first VM, be happy that your host made it that long and then unshield all of the VMs, delete the certificates, and reshield the VMs. In the HGS domain, open an elevated Windows PowerShell console on an HGS server and run the following command. For convenience, name the output file using the host's name. That will shield the VMs under the keyset of the new target host. These virtual machines are not permanently matched to their source host. It’s ridiculously easy to start using Shielded Virtual Machines, but its simplicity can mask some very serious consequences if the environment and guests are not properly managed. Repeat the preceding steps for each host that will become a guarded host, being sure to give each XML file a unique name. Most of the time, I see it used to refer to certificates that were signed by someone’s internal certificate authority, like their private domain’s Enterprise CA. You canuse Shielded Virtual Machines on standalone hosts without ever even finding any setup for Host Guardian Service (HGS). I don’t know if this behaviour has always been the case but this was on Server 2016. However, even a local admin won’t be able to steal virtual machines without having access to the exported key as well. A vTPM depends on virtual machine encryption to secure vital TPM data. Beginning with Windows Server version 1709, sample CI policies are included at C:\Windows\schemas\CodeIntegrity\ExamplePolicies. The above command creates a CI policy in audit mode only. The disk image isn’t initialized, or contains partitions that aren’t recognizable, or contains volumes that haven’t been assigned drive letters. The shielding certificates are completely useless without their private keys! LSVMTools aims to protectLinux VMs from attack while at rest and in flight. If the TPM baseline and CI policy were created by using v2 attestation and then later you need to add a guarded host without a TPM certificate, you need to re-create each artifact with the -PolicyVersion v1 flag. I would expect that any VM other than the original could not read a Bitlocker-ed VHDX. For small businesses, this is the primary benefit of using Shielded Virtual Machines. A TPM baseline is required for each unique class of hardware in your datacenter fabric. Applies to: Windows Server 2019, Windows Server (Semi-Annual Channel), Windows Server 2016. You can connect to any computer in the same or a trusting domain, provided that the user account that you started MMC.EXE with has administrative privileges on that computer: Use the mouse to highlight the first serial number, which should be for the encryption certificate, then press [Enter] to copy it to the clipboard. That said, shielding a VM on an untrusted host still protects its data if the files for the VM are ever copied to a system outside of your control. A shielded VM is a generation 2 VM (supported on Windows Server 2012 and later) that has a virtual TPM, is encrypted using BitLocker and can only run on healthy and approved hosts in the fabric. Only Generation 2 virtual machines can be shielded. BitLocker encryption protects the shielded VM’s data at rest and when the VM is moving across the network during a Live Migration. On the reference host, generate a new code integrity policy. The benefits are many; however, as much as I love virtualization, I’m almost the first person to tell you that virtualization also requires us to think differently about the security of our virtualized infrastructure a… Since then, I have been writing regular blogs and contributing what I can to the Hyper-V community through forum participation and free scripts. There is no backdoor. It would have been interesting to see if I could have mounted the additional drives on to another VM but I presume the result would have been the same until I installed the certificates. If you’d prefer not to, you can also create a shielded VM using PowerShell alone, as demonstrated in the Step by step – Creating shielded VMs without VMM blog. Shielded VM relies on Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) -compliant firmware to support features such as Secure Boot. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 3.3. I’ll give you directions, but the one thing that you must absolutely not miss is the bit about exporting the private keys. On each guarded host, run the following command in an elevated Windows PowerShell console to obtain its EKpub. The only thing that you must absolutely have is a Generation 2 virtual machine. The virtual hard disks for a Shielded Virtual Machine cannot be opened or mounted on unauthorized systems. Generation 1 virtual machines can be encrypted by Hyper-V. That’s a topic for another article. You can’t renew these certificates, though, so the host will no longer be able to use them to sign or encrypt new VMs. A prompt will appear for the target of the Certificates snap-in. Typically, you will name the policy after the class of hardware it represents (for example, "Manufacturer Model Revision"). DC1: This VM is the Domain Controller for the following AD Forest: GET-CMD.local. However, you may run into issues with Live Migration and other cluster-based features. I’m trying to import the keys to another Hyper-V host but the certificate store “Shielded VM Local Certificates” doesn’t exist. These validations are designed to make you aware of the minimum requirements of running a shielded VM on the host. Shielded VMs use health attestation to make sure these virtual machines … Furthermore, the virtual machine must contain a virtual TPM … Under Hyper-V, it is straightforward to equip a VM with a vTPM chip. That is not self-signed! Do not skip this section just because it might have some dry technical details! An administrator without full rights to the shielded VM can power it off and on but cannot change the settings or view the contents. In case you didn’t already know, “VMConnect.exe” is a separate executable that Hyper-V Manager and Failover Cluster Manager both call upon when you instruct them to connect to the console of a virtual machine. Beginning with Windows Server 2019, v2 attestation is used by default and you need to specify the -PolicyVersion v1 flag when you run Add-HgsAttestationTpmHost if you need to register a TPM without a certificate. I will export certificate and import it on other host however my concern and question is my source machine will be infact? Others will receive an error message that isn’t perfectly obvious, but should be decipherable with a bit of thought. Step 6: Creating a shielded VM Creating shielded … Mimikatz depends on local administrator access to the keystore in order to perform the extraction. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the 4.4 kernel 3.2. Ensure that the PFX files that you created are moved to a SAFE place and that the password is SECURED (or if you used one or more security principals, hope that nothing ever happens to them)! New 10 year certificates will be automatically created and give you another decade to worry about the problem. In the HGS domain, copy the code integrity policy to an HGS server and run the following command. Use a Remote Desktop Connection instead.”. To make matters worse, the current documentation on this feature is sparse and reads more like marketing brochures than technical material. Two policies are recommended for Windows Server: It is recommended that you first create the CI policy in audit (logging) mode to see if it's missing anything, then enforce the policy for host production workloads. Most people assume their emails, contacts and calendar events are saved somewhere but they're not. UEFI 4. The IP Address is 10.0.0.5 3. Get-VHD, even on Server 2016, does not show anything about encryption. A second computer (Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016) capable of running Hyper-V Manager to connect to the running VM's console 3. For more information, see Guarded Fabric and Shielded VMs. Only systems specifically authorized to operate a Shielded Virtual Machine will be able to start it. You can run the shielded virtual machine locally without setting up a Host Guardian Service. Enable Virtual TPM If you are not using Guarded fabric and shielded VMs in your environment, then enabling Virtual TPM can be accomplished by using Enable-VMTPM and Disable-VMTPM PowerShell cmdlets without using HGS Key Protector, as shown in Figure 2. I did some tinkering with this today. Since you brought it up, I should also point out that Mimikatz is not doing anything particularly special. It’s a bit lockered VM with two additional bitlockered virtual drives. You can add a vTPM to either a new virtual machine or an existing virtual machine. The Microsoft Management Console (MMC.EXE) has a dependency on the Explorer rendering engine, so it is only available on GUI systems. You can use Shielded Virtual Machines on standalone hosts without ever even finding any setup for Host Guardian Service (HGS). Failure to do so may result in unexpected failures up to and including data loss or a blue screen error (also called a stop error). Shielded VM’s encrypt their OS disk and, while a bit of an over … Details are included in the HostGuardianService-Client event log.” The details of the error will be different depending on your overall configuration. Hi Eric, We recommend a primary level of Publisher with fallback to Hash, which allows most digitally signed software to be updated without changing the CI policy. I would say that if you have the ability to configure HGS, do that. HYPV1: This is the Hyper-V host that will become a Guarded Host. You can use it to connect to systems without a GUI, though, as long as they are in the same or a trusting domain. If you'd prefer not to, you can also create a shielded VM using PowerShell alone, as demonstrated in the Step by step - Creating shielded VMs without VMM blog. After exporting certificate from it. Your email address will not be published. As in, you couldn’t even boot the VM, or you could start it but it couldn’t read its disk? Your training continues on the Dojo Forums! Yes. ), My hyper v vm is fully replicated to other host ( both hosts are non clustered and domain joined). In 2010, I deployed a Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 system and began writing about my experiences. Code integrity policies can be configured to enforce the policy, blocking any software that does not comply with the policy, or simply audit (log an event when software not defined in the policy is executed). … Since all of the virtual machine’s data is on an automatically backed-up storage location, you don’t bother doing anything special for backup. I dont have the Azure and VMM in my environment. By default, the configuration script will install certificates for every TPM vendor. If they are lost, any virtual machine that they were used to shield is also permanently lost… unless you have the ability to crack 2048-bit SHA256 encryption. Get VM EKpub from the device host Shielded VM has vTPM, which has the same characteristics of a physical TPM including the presence of EKpub. You can check if an EKCert is missing by opening the XML file in an editor such as Notepad and checking for an error message indicating no EKCert was found. Highlight both certificates. The “easiest” way is the checkbox on the GUI tab. If you’re wanting to know how to do a full HGS setup and configuration, that’s a very big ask and I cannot fulfill it in a comment. This may include running VMs, any fabric management agents, backup agents, or troubleshooting tools on the machine. Access to and control of a Shielded Virtual Machine is governed by asymmetric public/private encryption keys. This creates a policy consistent with the Windows Server 2016 behavior and will require you to use -PolicyVersion v1 when registering the CI policy and the TPM baseline as well. Hi Eric, Thanks for this article. Sorry I probably didn’t make myself clear. For more information about the available CI policy rule levels, see Deploy code integrity policies: policy rules and file rules and cmdlet help. This mode of attestation uses Secure Boot and code integrity measurements to ensure that a given Hyper-V host is in a healthy state and is running only trusted code. When i try to run planned failover, am getting key wrapped protector error, hence unable to start vm on other host. If you ever need to recover the certificates, use this template: You’ll be prompted for the password on each one. If you only want to import certificates for your specific TPM vendor, delete the folders for TPM vendors not trusted by your … Vm ( in this example, `` Manufacturer Model Revision '' ) obtain its EKPub by running Initialize-Tpm test so.
