seL4 microkernel to be Open Source

General Dynamics C4 Systems and NICTA are pleased to announce the open sourcing of seL4, the world's first operating-system kernel with an end-to-end proof of implementation correctness and security enforcement. It is still the world's most highly-assured OS.

What's being released?

It will include all of the kernel's source code, all the proofs, plus other code and proofs useful for building highly trustworthy systems. All will be under standard open-source licensing terms. More details will be posted here closer to the release date.

When is it happening?

The release will happen at noon of Tuesday, 29 July 2014 AEST (UTC+10), in celebration of International Proof Day (the fifth aniversary of the completion of seL4's functional correctness proof).
