Android Kernel

The Sirin Software team contributed to developing the SecureOS Proof of Concept (POC). 

Key milestones achieved include:

  • Porting LXC/cgroups kernel functionality.
  • Transferring LXC user-space utilities from Linux to Android.
  • Creating a minimal LXC image for Android OS.

Value Delivered
  • Efficiency: The system only boots up the kernel and initiates the guest Android OS within a container. 
  • Enhanced security: If the guest OS is compromised, the host OS remains unaffected, enabling an easy restart of a new guest OS instance.
  • Improved Host Android OS: The system comprises a host Android OS enhanced with LXC/cgroups functionality.
