Industry observers acknowledge that Type 1 hypervisors like the INTEGRITY Multivisor possess the necessary software foundation to achieve a far higher level of robustness and security than is possible with Type 2 hypervisors and OS virtualization/containers. However, because the Type 1 hypervisor runs on bare metal, it must be ported. INTEGRITY Multivisor for Trusted Mobile Devices eliminates the traditional development time and cost tradeoff of the Type 1 approach because it leverages the INTEGRITY separation kernel that is already widely, rapidly, and continuously ported across processors as a real-time kernel for embedded systems. In addition, the INTEGRITY Multivisor for Trusted Mobile Devices v4 employs an I/O management infrastructure for secure sharing of the full suite of mobile and automotive device peripherals without requiring special assistance from device manufacturers. INTEGRITY Multivisor can be ported to a new mobile device using a supported chipset and Android release in weeks.
"As has already transpired in the cloud, the hypervisor is quickly supplanting the operating system as the software foundation for sophisticated consumer electronics," commented David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer, Green Hills Software. "INTEGRITY Multivisor is the ideal hypervisor for mobile, enabling the vision of secure, dual-mode personal/business use and reduced total cost of ownership that is simply impossible with a mobile OS by itself."
About INTEGRITY Multivisor
INTEGRITY Multivisor is a member of the family of INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization (ISV) solutions. Multivisor consists of the certified INTEGRITY real-time microkernel technology coupled with facilities to execute one or more "guest" operating systems. INTEGRITY Multivisor also provides a native, open standards-based environment for critical applications, such as security functionality and fast-boot real-time applications. INTEGRITY Multivisor offers several approaches to virtualization in ARM-powered devices, including paravirtualization, and full virtualization with or without hardware hypervisor acceleration. As the digital world grows in complexity, no single operating system suffices. The hypervisor provides the right level of abstraction -- the virtual machine -- for flexibility, scalability, and portability, enabling elegant yet practical solutions to previously intractable computing problems.
INTEGRITY Multivisor for Trusted Mobile Devices has been shipping in commercial smartphones and tablets since 2012. Version 4 is available today.
