Project Raisin – Raise Xen!

It all started with pvgrub2: it was March 2015 and I wanted to add grub2 to the Xen build system. We were already building grub-legacy as part of the Xen build, so that we could produce a pvgrub binary to be used to boot PV guests. After Vladimir ‘phcoder‘ Serbinenko’s good work on grub2, the […]

MirageOS v2.5 with full TLS support

Today we're announcing the new release of MirageOS v2.5, which includes first-class support for SSL/TLS in the MirageOS configuration language. We introduced the pure OCaml implementation of transport layer security (TLS) last summer and have been working since then to improve the integration and create a robust framework. The recent releases allow developers to easily build and deploy secure unikernel services and we've also incorporated numerous bug-fixes and major stability improvements (especially in the network stack). The full list of changes is available on the releases page and the breaking API changes now have their own page. Over the coming week, we'll...

Why OCaml-TLS?

TLS implementations have a history of security flaws, which are often the result of implementation errors. These security flaws stem from the underlying challenges of interpreting ambiguous specifications, the complexities of large APIs and code bases, and the use of unsafe programming practices. Re-engineering security-critical software allows the opportunity to use modern approaches to prevent these recurring issues. Creating the TLS stack in OCaml offers a range of benefits, including: Robust memory safety: Lack of memory safety was the largest single source of vulnerabilities in various TLS stacks throughout 2014, including Heartbleed (CVE-2014-0160). OCaml-TLS avoids this class of issues entirely due to OCaml's automatic...
