DARPA-derived secure microkernel goes open source tomorrow

Commnet: A drone protecting code is being released to the public






A nippy microkernel mathematically proven to be bug free*, and used to protect drones from hacking, will be released as open source tomorrow.

The formal-methods-based secure embedded L4 (seL4) microkernel was developed by Australian boffins at National ICT Australia (NICTA) and was part of the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's High-Assurance Cyber Military Systems program hatched in 2012 to stop hackers knocking unmanned birds out of the sky.
