Realize the Benefits of a Safe and Secure ARINC 653 Hypervisor
DornerWorks is developing extensions to the open source Xen hypervisor that will meet DO-178C Level A requirements for safety and high robustness requirements based on Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 6+ for security. Our extensions provide compliance with the ARINC 653 standard, including time and space partitioning and refine the idea of I/O partitioning. Our partitioning of I/O provides deterministic bandwidth allocation to guest domains.
To meet security requirements we apply modern formal analysis techniques to our design.
A distinctive aspect of our hypervisor is our use of permissive licensing based on open source with meticulous configuration management. We believe that the transparency and availability offered by a permissive license and an open architecture coupled with rigorous certification artifacts for both safety and security establishes a compelling alternative for partitioning of software in safety and security-critical systems.
