OSNews, Generic OSes "An increasing number of machines are equipped with hardware that can be used to support trustworthy computing. Trustworthy computing enables applications to make strong assurances about their behavior. Existing operating systems do not provide the right execution environment for trustworthy computing, and so are unable to fully exploit this emerging opportunity. The Nexus is a new operating system for trustworthy computing. Its microkernel architecture greatly reduces the size of the trusted computing base (TCB) by moving functionality out of the kernel."

Amazing...6 years after MS announced how such an architecture should look like and research community published their alternative design, this group manages to publish the news all over again without even mentioning related work.

What they describe as new was already subject to several demonstrations in multiple international projects using FOSS-based prototypes. Just google for OpenTC, EMSCB, Turaya, L4.
