Building Microkernel-Based Operating Systems




This lecture does not require any registration!

The focus of this lecture is on different aspects in the construction and implementation of microkernel-based operating systems. The lecture covers the fundamental mechanisms that are required for efficiently constructing efficient microkernel-based systems. In addition, example systems are presented to highlight the flexibility of the microkernel approach. This lecture and the presented systems is based on the Fiasco microkernel developed at the Universität Dresden and on projects building on top of this microkernel including L4Linux, L4Env, DROPS and µSINA.
