    Due to exposure to the Internet, virtual machines (VMs) as forms of delivering virtualized infrastructures and resources represent a first point-of-target for security attackers who want to gain access into the virtualization environment. InVM
    monitoring approach can be compromised in the event of a successful VM compromise. Virtual Machine Introspection (VMI) takes a different approach of monitoring the guest VMs externally. This paper presents a review on VMI focusing on the typical usages of integrating VMI with other virtualization security techniques.
