Formal Refinement for Operating System Kernels

Formal Refinement for Operating System Kernels

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=371856&cjsku=371856...
This book was written as a companion to my book on modelling operating system kernels. It is intended to demonstrate that the formal derivation of kernels is possible (and, actually, quite easy, or so I have found thus far). Itisimportantforthereadertounderstandthatthere?nementscontained in this book are not the only ones I have performed of microkernels. To date, I have re?ned four microkernels down to executable code and have now p- duced a kit of formally speci?ed components that can be composed to form kernels. The ?rst kernel included in this book is just one example of this work. The second kernel, the Separation Kernel, is new and was partly constructed out of the kit of parts (and the reader will see reuse in its speci?cation and re?nement) and was included for speci?c reasons that will become clear anon. Bothkernelstooklessthanthreemonths'workingtimetoproduce(theactual time is rather hard to calculate because of frequent interruptions). Previous experience in re?ning kernels also paid o? in the sense that there was l- tle revision involved in their speci?cation or re?nement; the usual process of yo-yoing between levels of the derivation was absent. This appears to be an inevitable consequence of experience.

Formal Models of Operating System Kernels

The work that this book represents is something I have wanted to do since 1979. While in Ireland, probably in 2001, I sketched some parts of a small operating system speci?cation in Z but left it because of other duties. In 2002, I worked on the sketches again but was interrupted. Finally, in April, 2005, I decided to devote some time to it and produced what amounted to a ?rst version of the kernel to be found in Chapter 3 of this book. I even produced a few proofs, just to show that I was not on a completely insane tack. I decided to suggest the material as the subject of a book to Beverley Ford. The material was sent on a Thursday (I think). The following Monday, I received an email from her saying that it had gone out for review. The review process took less than 2 weeks; the response was as surprising as it was encouraging: a de?nite acceptance. So I got on with it. This book is intended as a new way to approach operating systems - sign in general, and kernel design in particular. It was partly driven by the old ambition mentioned above, by the need for greater clarity where it comes to kernels and by the need, as I see it, for a better foundation for operating systemsdesign.Securityaspects,too,playedapartasnotedintheintrod- tory chapter, if a system's kernel is insecure or unreliable, it will undermine attemptstoconstructsecuresoftwareontopofit.Securitydoesnototherwise play a part in this book.

The Design and Implementation of the 4.4 BSD Operating System

The Design and Implementation of the 4.4 BSD Operating System

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=726590&cjsku=726590...
This book describes the design and implementation of the BSD operating system--previously known as the Berkeley version of UNIX. Today, BSD is found in nearly every variant of UNIX, and is widely used for Internet services and firewalls, timesharing, and multiprocessing systems. Readers involved in technical and sales support can learn the capabilities and limitations of the system; applications developers can learn effectively and efficiently how to interface to the system; systems programmers can learn how to maintain, tune, and extend the system. Written from the unique perspective of the system's architects, this book delivers the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and authoritative technical information on the internal structure of the latest BSD system. As in the previous book on 4.3BSD (with Samuel Leffler), the authors first update the history and goals of the BSD system. Next they provide a coherent overview of its design and implementation. Then, while explaining key design decisions, they detail the concepts, data structures, and algorithms used in implementing the system's facilities. As an in-depth study of a contemporary, portable operating system, or as a practical reference, readers will appreciate the wealth of insight and guidance contained in this book. Highlights of the book: Details major changes in process and memory management Describes the new extensible and stackable filesystem interface Includes an invaluable chapter on the new network filesystem Updates information on networking and interprocess communication
