Who’s using bors?

This month’s featured user is Tock OS, an embedded operating system for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers. Here’s their GitHub page.

Tock is designed to provide high-granularity isolation without using lots of memory. While most operating systems do isolation by giving each process its own slice of memory, Tock additionally isolates kernel-level “capsules” using language-based isolation, providing greater security guarantees without additional memory fragmentation.

Got any suggestions for next month? Post a comment on the September pull request.
