Released as Open Source Software (OSS) in June 2014, OpenXT is a
collection of hardened Linux VMs configured to provide a user facing Xen
platform for client devices. This default configuration was mostly
static, applying some disaggregation techniques to segregate system
components based on a general threat analysis. The goals embodied in
this code base up to its release produced a one-size-fits-most
configuration with extensibility in specific areas to encapsulate 3rd
party value-add.

With a community now forming around OpenXT we must come to terms with
the limitations of the this approach. In this talk Philip will define
what OpenXT is and in this definition, show that OpenXT can meet the
varied needs of the security and virtualization community through the
construction of a toolkit for the configurable disaggregation of a Xen

Philip has been working at the intersection of OSS, security and virtualization for 5 years. He got his start in a US government research lab which turned out to be the ideal environment for tinkering with Linux and some of the more interesting security infrastructure therein. He went on to contribute to the construction of a client virtualization system. This system is unique in its embedded nature and focus on security. It proved to be a... Read More →
