Mike Rapoport of IBM, a partner of the UNICORE Consortium, will participate at the online Open Source Tech Conference on August 10-13th. This conference will cover topics like Linux kernel network stack, Linux networking APIs for user-space, High-performance networking in Linux, Networking for VMs and containers, Linux memory management, Linux-based electronic systems development, Open source mobile operating systems, Linux debugging and troubleshooting.
Mike will give a presentation on “Address Space Separation Inside the Linux Kernel”. In this talk, Rapoport is going to present a mechanism for “system call isolation” that allows running a system call with largely reduced page tables and provides the kernel with the ability to inspect the memory accesses and verify their safety based on a pre-defined policy. He will also take a closer look at the possibility to assign an address space to the Linux namespaces, so that tasks running in namespace A have different view of kernel memory mappings than the tasks running in namespace B.
