James Bottomley and Mike Rapoport, from IBM, a partner of the UNICORE Consortium, will participate at FOSDEM’20, a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of free and open source software.
IBM representatives will give a presentation on “Address Space Isolation in the Linux Kernel” on Saturday, February 1st from 16:00-16:50 in K.1.105 Room (La Fontaine) during the track dedicated to containers and security. They are going to present the approach for the implementation of restricted mappings in the Linux kernel and how this implementation would be used with various use-cases. They are also going to take a closer look at 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.
James Bottomley is a Distinguished Engineer at IBM Research where he works on Cloud and Container technology and he is also Linux Kernel maintainer of the SCSI subsystem. Mike Rapoport has lots of programming experience in different areas ranging from medical equipment to visual simulation, but most of all he likes hacking on Linux kernel and low level stuff. He’s working now at IBM Research.
Don’t miss their talk!
