Arm Contributions to Xen Based Safety Systems

By October 5, 2020Events, Technical

Arm, a member of the Xen project, has made valuable contributions to the Xen Project through the years. In this talk, Bertrand Marquis, Principal Software Engineer, Arm Ltd, highlights some of these contributions and outlines what’s to come. 

Bertrand starts with the Autonomy reference stack, a Yocto based collection of layers providing a way to create a Xen based virtualized autonomous system. He also explains PCI passthrough support on Arm and also talks through several future contributions including 1:1 mapping and static mapping.

Bertrand rounds out this talk by explaining the Safety Island concept which aims to replace Xen Dom0 by an RTOS (or an application) running without Xen underneath.
