An in-depth look into the ARM virtualization extensions

In their just-published article, the Genode OS developers closely examine the virtualization extensions of the ARM architecture and document the process of turning their custom kernel into a microhypervisor – a hybrid of microkernel and hypervisor. Besides covering the virtualization of memory, interrupts, time, and CPU resources, the article also presents a series of experiments with ARM’s protection mechanism against DMA-based attacks.
