Abstract

There have been numerous attempts to decompose operating systems into multiple servers running on top of a microkernel. Decomposition offers a lot of advantages, such as better security and robustness, flexibility with respect to changing requirements, reusability of servers in different contexts, and maintainability due to clearly defined roles and… (More)
