mirage-tcpip provides a networking stack for the Mirage operating
system. It provides implementations for the following module types (which correspond with the similarly-named protocols):
- IP (via the IPv4 and IPv6 modules)
There are two implementations of the IP, ICMP, UDP, and TCP module types - the
socket stack, and the
socket stack uses socket calls to a traditional operating system to provide the functionality described in the module types. See the
unix/ directory for the modules used as implementations of the
socket stack. The
socket stack is used for testing or other applications which do not expect to run as unikernels.
direct stack expects to write to a device implementing the
NETIF module type defined for MirageOS. See the
lib/ directory for the modules used as implementations of the
direct stack, which are the expected stack for most MirageOS applications. The
direct stack is the only usable set of implementations for applications which will run as unikernels on a hypervisor target.
