This dissertation presents research into building efficient cross-domain mechanisms which allow operating systems to be implemented as cooperating applications, eliminating the need for a monolithic kernel. The approach described here, called SPACE, builds kernel-less operating system services without compromising protection or performance relative to kernel-based systems. Systems built using SPACE can achieve higher performance than kernel-based systems because even the most fundamental… CONTINUE READING
