The Bareflank Hypervisor is an open source, hypervisor Software Development Toolkit (SDK), led by Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS), that provides a set of APIs needed to rapidly prototype and create new hypervisors. To ease development, Bareflank is written in C/C++, and includes support for C++ exceptions, JSON, the GSL and the C++ Standard Template Library (STL).
The purpose of this repository, is to provide an extended set of APIs to build your hypervisors from. Some of these APIs include:
- MSR / IO Bitmaps
- VPID / Extended Page Tables (EPT)
- Monitor Traps
- Virtual APIC / Interrupt Management
- Improved UEFI support
Compilation / Usage
To setup our extension, run the following:
git clone https://github.com/Bareflank/hypervisor git clone https://github.com/Bareflank/extended_apis mkdir build; cd build cmake ../hypervisor -DDEFAULT_VMM=eapis_vmm -DEXTENSION=../extended_apis make -j<# cores + 1>
To test out our extended version of Bareflank, run the following commands:
make driver_quick make quick
to reverse this:
make unload make driver_unload
