Although not specifically security related, virtualization is quite a bit in security testing and research...

The following article for your consideration and discussion:

Apple to Allow Virtualization of Leopard
By Adam C. Engst

My only comment is that this is NOT the same as Apple coming right out and saying in plain English "you can run Mac OS X within a virtual machine on Apple-branded-hardware-host under the following specific conditions, pursuant to the EULA...". As far as I know, Apple themselves have never directly and publicly addressed running Mac OS X within a virtual machine. (Speaking through Parallels and VMware doesn't count, IMHO.)
