IVI system sandboxing: The next frontier for in-vehicle upgrades

Alex Agizim, VP and CTO of Embedded Systems at GlobalLogic, had the opportunity to speak at Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit 2014, in Napa, about their use of the Xen Project Hypervisor for building OSS-based IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment) systems. Here’s how he described his experience to Linux.com. “The evolution of in-vehicle systems is a very exciting topic, [...]

MirageOS is in Google Summer of Code 2014

MirageOS will part of the Google Summer of Code 2014 program, thanks to the Xen Project's participation! It's been a few years since I've mentored for GSoc, but I still have fond memories of some great projects in the past (such as the legendary Quake testing we were forced to do for hours on end). I've already received a number of queries about this year's program from potential students, so here's a few things to note to become a successful applicant. Students still need to apply and be accepted. Your chances of being selected are much higher if...

Mirage 1.1.0: the eat-your-own-dogfood release

We've just released Mirage 1.1.0 into OPAM. Once the live site updates, you should be able to run opam update -u and get the latest version. This release is the "eat our own dogfood" release; as I mentioned earlier in January, a number of the Mirage developers have decided to shift our own personal homepages onto Mirage. There's nothing better than using our own tools to find all the little annoyances and shortcomings, and so Mirage 1.1.0 contains some significant usability and structural improvements for building unikernels. Functional combinators to build device drivers Mirage separates the application logic from the concrete backend...

Shattering the myths of Windows security

When I originally described the flexible Qubes Odyssey framework several months ago, I mentioned that we would even consider to use “Windows Native Isolation” mechanisms as a primitive type of isolation provider (“hypervisor”) for some basic edition of Qubes for Windows. The idea has been very attractive indeed, because with minimal effort we could allow people to install and run such Qubes WNI on their normal, consumer Windows laptops.Sure, the inter-process isolation provided by a monolithic kernel such as Windows or Linux could never be compared to the inter-VM isolation offered even by the most lousy hypervisors. This is simply...
