IPC for the Partitioning Hypervisor Jailhouse - Jan Kiszka, Siemens AG

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Jailhouse hypervisor for Linux was created to enable strict partitioning between multiple operating systems or bare-metal workloads on multicore systems. However, these partitions typically have a need for exchanging data between each other while maintaining the isolation, for real-time, functional safety or security reasons.

In this talk, we will present our requirements on inter-partition communication mechanisms, look into existing building blocks, in Jailhouse as well as in other solutions. We will show results of a prototype that allows building virtual networks between partitions as well as provide an outlook on the next steps. Furthermore, we will discuss how these results could be reused beyond the Jailhouse use case.
