L4Android

Smartphones became many people’s primary means of communication. Emerging applications such as Near Field Communication require new levels of security that cannot be enforced by current smartphone operating systems. Therefore vendors resort to hardware extensions that have limitations in flexibility and increase the bill of materials. L4Android is a generic operating system framework that does away with the need for such hardware extensions. We encapsulate the original smartphone operating system in a virtual machine. L4Android allows for highly secure applications to run side-by-side with the virtual machine. It is based on a state-of-the-art microkernel that ensures isolation between the virtual machine and secure applications.

See l4android.org for more details on this project.
