AFSecurity Seminar

Virtual-Machine Security

DATE: 5 April 2016. 14:00h

LOCATION: Kristen Nygaards sal (room 5370), Ole Johan Dahl's House.

AGENDA:

14:00h Welcome at IFI

14:15h Talk: IncludeOS and unikernels: Minimal, resource efficient virtual machines - Are they secure? 15:00h Discussion

SPEAKER: Alfred Bratterud (HiOA)

ABSTRACT: Unikernels are getting known as single address space machine images, created using library operating systems. In practice they are used to wrap a single service inside a virtual machine without the significant overhead of a general purpose operating system such as Linux or Windows. IncludeOS is a recent addition to the unikernel family developed at HiOA and written from scratch in C++ . While the most well known unikernel projects target Xen paravirtualization, IncludeOS is developed for x86 hardware virtualization. In this talk we give an overview of the IncludeOS architecture compared with other unikernel projects, with an emphasis on identifying potential security benefits.
