OS Diversification

Our goal was to provide protection to applications and software systems in a new way: we diversified the implementations of all software layers and their interfaces on the binary level. The project was eventually only one year project (2014), funded by MATINE.


REPLICA is a 3-year (2011-2013) project funded by VTT. VTT collaborates with University of Linköping, Sweden, and University of Turku, Finland. The removing performance and programmability limitations of chip multiprocessor architecture (REPLICA) project aims at developing a CESM architecture and methodology that would enable radically easier programming and higher performance based on synchronous shared memory model of computation.
