Abstract [en]

Virtualization is used to improve overall system security, isolate the hardware and it properly manages the available system resources also. The main purpose of using virtualization in embedded systems is to increase the system security by isolating the underlying hardware and also by providing multiple secure execution environments for the guests. A hypervisor also called as the Virtual Machine monitor is responsible for mapping virtual resources to physical resources.Hypervisor based virtualization is gaining more popularity in embedded systems because of the security focussed mission critical applications. Linux OS is chosen because of its popular use in embedded systems. In this thesis, we list out the modifications required to port a Linux kernel onto a hypervisor. This Linux Kernel is already ported to ARM CPU and the hypervisor in question has been developed by Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS).
