With the rapid growth in computing power of embedded platforms, system designers are turning to hypervisors to consolidate functionality in order to reduce the Size, Weight, Power, and Cost of embedded systems. With the recent addition of ARM support to the Xen hypervisor, Xen provides an attractive Open Source option for such systems. However, some of the industries most interested in this technology, such as automotive, medical, and avionics, have strict safety certification requirements. Nathan Studer will give a brief overview on DornerWorks efforts certifying Xen, describe the hurdles and advantages that Xen and its development model lend to the certification effort, and layout a proposed path for certifying Xen.
