Qemu is surely a good candidate for this. Although it's not network-
accessible, it is accessible from the guests that it runs via its huge
and ill-specified surface of emulated devices.
I'm running my own modified qemu package [qemu-1.4.0-5.fc20.x86_64]
with hardening flags enabled. It seems to be working OK so far ...
