Could you clarify that - you mean like PCI network card assignment?
Because the guest can't be safe from its host, from a security stance,
unless SELinux does more than I realize.
It would be straightforward to create an isolated monitoring bridge with
a private address space if one wanted to do SNMP between guests and
hosts. (OK, to be fair, I haven't ever tried this with virtual interfaces).
Alton Brown is always asking at the kitchen gadget store, "OK, but what

special-purpose device, but is it a one-off or the start of more
That armchair quarterbacking aside - the Wiki page says you have
