TUD OS Demo CD released

The OS Group of Technische Universität Dresden (TUD:OS) has released a live demo CD of their operating system project. They have been researching on microkerne-based design with focus on real-time and security.

Some highlights of the Demo CD are:

  • A new approach for securing graphical user interfaces called Nitpicker,
  • Multiple virtualized Linux kernels running deprivileged on the L4/Fiasco microkernel,
  • A survey of device driver architectures on microkernel-based systems,
  • The presentation of our virtual-file-system approach,
  • A secure transaction application, Qt3 demo applications, and libSDL-based applications running directly on our custom operating system foundation.

More information – an ISO image, and screenshots are available at the demo CD website
