eLua (Embedded Lua) aims to introduce the programming language Lua to the embedded software development world. Lua is the perfect example of a minimal yet fully functional language. The aim of the project is to have a fully functional Lua development environment on a microcontroller (Lua interpreter, modules appropriate for microcontroller environments, and editor) without the need to install a specific toolchain on the PC side.
Xvisor is a type-1 hypervisor that aims to provide a monolithic, light-weight, portable, and flexible virtualization solution for ARMv5, ARMv6, ARMv7a, ARMv7a-ve, ARMv8a, x86_64, and other CPU architectures. It primarily supports full virtualization, and hence supports a wide range of unmodified guest operating systems. Paravirtualization is optional and is supported in an architecture independent manner (such as VirtIO PCI/MMIO devices) to ensure that no changes are required in the guest OS.
airbag_fd provides drop-in crash handlers for POSIX (particularly for embedded Linux). It dumps registers, backtraces, and instruction streams to a file descriptor. It is intended to be self-contained and resilient. Where possible, it will detect and intelligently handle a corrupt state (for example, jumping through a bad pointer or a blown stack). The harvesting and reporting of the crash log is left as an exercise for the reader.
BugOS is a microkernel operating system. It has a kernel, device drivers, a file system, and an Internet module. The main concepts are that every process has its own computer with its own console, security, and modularization. If a process wants to read the file, it asks the kernel. The kernel forwards the request to the filesystem driver, which reads and writes through the partition handler, which operates over the idehdd driver. The kernel is around 20 KB. Processes are fully separated from hardware.
Capstone is a disassembly framework with the target of becoming the ultimate disasm engine for binary analysis and reversing in the security community. Running on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and Solaris, it can disassemble ARM, ARM64 (ARMv8), MIPS, PPC, and x86 architectures. Capstone provides rich details about disassembled instructions along with useful semantic information.
