1. AIS Redfield Roadmap - Brendan Kerrigan, Chris Patterson, Rich Turner
- Historical precedent: OpenXCI (2014)
2. OpenXT 8.1 Roadmap - Chris Rogers
- possible option: make this OpenXT 9.0, based on master, branched to stable-9 in early 2019
3. Freeboard Mobility Use Cases: Android on OpenXT - Jafar Al-Gharaibeh
4. Landscape: Xen Automotive, Intel ACRN, Silicon Exclusivity (SGX), AWS Nitro hypervisor, Microsoft SystemGuard, Microsoft 365 DaaS, Supply Chain Integrity, Reproducible Builds - Rich Persaud
- Stakeholder interest in BSD-licensed codebases
- Functional Safety certification driving architectures similar to OpenXT security architecture
- Fragmentation of hypervisor talent pool
- Business model changes (endpoint licensing vs. service subscriptions) aligned with device trust and end-to-end attestation
5. Xen: nested virtualization, L1TF mitigation (core scheduling) performance - Tamas Lengyel
- Performance impact of disabling hyper-threading is workload and machine dependent
- Upstream Xen support for nesting is dependent on Intel hardware generation (broken on Skylake forward)
- Hyper-V exits in orderly fashion when nested under Xen, unclear if due to missing functionality. No change with CPUID.
6. Nested Virtualization: L0/L1 Xen, Bromium uXen, IBM UltraVisor, IBM/RedHat KVM — Daniel Smith
