Apriorit and Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (Korea) teamed on the ViMo project whose main goal was to satisfy the need for BYOD and provide users with fully isolated business and personal environments in order to protect corporate data and business processes from being compromised. ViMo allows two virtualized operating systems to function simultaneously on a single device with run-time switching between them. Previous project phases delivered Android Android co-functioning and switching, while the current project required Windows 7 Android co-existence.

Operating system virtualization can provide the required isolation but performance requirements also needed to be considered. Since a hardware device has limited resources, the idea was to make only one OS work at a time and allow the ability to switch instantly to another in run-time. In run-time switching, a user must be returned to the same system state (activity, running applications, etc.) as before the initial switch.

Since the system virtualization and switching approach proved to be a strong solution in the prior Android Android phase, specialists from ETRI were eager to support Android Windows 7 as the next stage.

The Windows 7 switching proved to be a challenging task since it required low-level system management functions whose methods are closed and undocumented. Research took 2 man-weeks and included the need to understand power management transition stages by reverse engineering the corresponding system files. Reverse engineers were able to describe the required hardware-abstraction level function interfaces and implement the prototype.

“I can’t imagine how we could have implemented this capability without using internal OS APIs and this is a good example of how the practice of legal Reverse Engineering can be extremely useful,” said Oleg Shomonko, Apriorit Development Director.

The Apriorit project team successfully integrated Windows 7 support and because of the implementation of the low-level hook, all performance requirements were also met OS switching is almost instantaneous. Understanding power management transition stages also opens other interesting potential for future projects: such as power optimization or running system context transferring from one physical device to another.

Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) is Korea’s largest government-funded research institute, focused on developing talent, techniques, and innovative ideas in the field of Information Telecommunications. The ultimate goal of ETRI is enhancing social and economic aspects of modern society.
