1 Janos A Java-oriented Active Network Operating System Jay Lepreau, Patrick Tullmann, Kristin Wright Wilson Hsieh, Godmar Back, many more... University of Utah Flux Research Group April 16, 1999

2 What is Janos?  Single-address space OS, with some but not much hardware memory protection  Contains a JVM  Primary target application code is Java byte code  Can also run Posix-like apps

3 Our Primary Hard Problem Availability: Resource Management and Control

4 Other Hard Problems  Information security  Performance  Tech transfer

5 Approach  Custom JVM providing inter-AA (inter-applet, inter- servlet) isolation within the same JVM  Add a policy-free strong security architecture that NSA, SCC, and we developed in another OS.  Underneath is a highly-modular “embedded” OS  Produce separately useful OS, security, and Java VM components.

6 Claim: Broad Relevance Our custom JVM, and probably the accompanying security architecture implementation, can run wherever JVM’s run today.

7 Resource Control  Leverage experience providing resource control in more traditional OS’es.  Apply user/kernel mode boundary to a type-safe environment (Java)  Obvious resources: Cycles / Bandwidth / Memory  Other resources: Caching store, persistent store, specialized hardware, specialized data  Admission control, prevent denial of service, fair sharing, perhaps latency constraints, early accounting

8 Genesis  Leverage lessons, designs, and sometimes code from earlier projects –Fluke OS »Microkernel-based OS with an extensible process model –Security architecture added to Fluke »Policy-flexible fine-grain mechanisms, revocation –The OSKit »Reusable low-level components and a framework (COM, APIs)  Other: –Optimization of Java for systems code »predictability, speed –Network testbed (possibly)

9 Janos Structure The OSKit++ Hardware Custom Java VM ANTS-5 EE Active Protocols

10 Janos Structure The OSKit++ Hardware Custom Java VM ANTS-5 EE Active Protocols

11 Janos Structure The OSKit++ Hardware Custom Java VM ANTS-5 EE Active Protocols Sec. Policy Engine

12 Janos Structure The OSKit++ Hardware Custom Java VM ANETD ANTS-5 EE Active Protocols Non-Java EE Other Java EE Sec. Policy Engine

13 Non-Java EE The OSKit++ Hardware Other Java EE Custom Java VM ANETD ANTS-5 EE Active Protocols Sec. Policy Engine UNIX

14 Possible Curves in the Road  Neither prototype JVM OS model is the right one  Hardware protection may be included  Flask security architecture may not map well to Java and Janos  Challenges in GC and cpu interactions.  More surprises undoubtedly await…

15 Status Done:  Prototype of JVM with strong OS process model  Prototype of JVM with resource controls for memory,cycles, GC  Partially modified ANTS to allow resource control To Do:  Eval and unify aspects of prototypes  New OSKit modules –Security components –Modular and optimized network access –Crypto, secure boot, …  Checks in enforcers  Performance, performance  9/99: Team3, support PANDA and Ninja
