The inaugural OpenXT Summit brings together developers and ecosystem participants for a 2-day conference in Fairfax, VA, USA on June 7-8, 2016.  The audience for this event includes kernel and application developers, hardware designers, system integrators and security architects.

Released as open-source software in 2014, OpenXT is a development toolkit for hardware-assisted security research and appliance integration. It includes hardened Linux VMs that can be configured as a user-facing software appliance for client devices, with virtualization of storage, network, input, sound, display and USB devices.  Hardware targets include laptops, desktops and workstations.  

OpenXT stands on the shoulders of the Xen Project, OpenEmbedded Linux and Citrix XenClient XT.  It is optimized for hardware-assisted virtualization with an IOMMU and a TPM.  It configures Xen network driver domains, Linux stub domains, Xen Security Modules, GPU passthrough, Intel TXT, SE Linux, and VPNs.  Guest operating systems include Windows, Linux and FreeBSD.  VM storage options include encrypted VHD files with boot-time measurement and non-persistence.  

The 2016 OpenXT Summit will chart the evolution of OpenXT from cross-domain endpoint virtualization to an extensible systems innovation platform, enabling derivative products to make security assurances for diverse hardware, markets and use cases.  

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.  For more information, please see the event website at http://openxt.org/summit.   For presentations and papers related to OpenXT, please see http://openxt.org/history.
