Feedback form is now closed.
libkrun is a dynamic library that enables programs to easily acquire Virtualization-based process isolation capabilities. Combined with an OCI runtime like crun, enables it to seamlessly run a container inside a Virtual Machine. Combined with a small frontend, such as krunvm, it makes possible to run Lightweight Virtual Machines based on OCI images. And that's just the start of it, as new use cases for libkrun continuously emerge, such as its use as a lightweight runtime for Confidential Computing workloads. In this session, Sergio Lopez will present libkrun's main components, design choices and future developments, along with a demonstration of its current capabilities and integrations in other projects.
