BedRock Systems believes that computing should be built on a rock-solid foundation. Our BedRock Hypervisor provides a trusted computing base with a minimal attack surface that will transform the foundation of cloud and software trust. It provides formally verified isolation at a scale that has never before been achieved, combined with active security, VM introspection, and policy enforcement. BedRock has created a secure layer of protection that is both invisible and un-bypassable, which also enables a more rapid adoption of critical workloads and services.

Formal Verification

Building a foundation based on formal verification enables us to precisely define with a formal model what a system can do. This is then matched, through proofs, to the actual code implementing the model. If the proof can satisfy the model, the code is formally verified. Formal verification allows us to establish the correctness of a system to the same degree of confidence that you know that 1 + 1 = 2, eliminating human error. In other words, we have mathematical proof of the BedRock Hypervisor’s effectiveness. At BedRock we are building formal verification at scale by investing in automation.

Minimal Attack Surface

The BedRock Hypervisor combines the best concepts from microkernels, capability-based systems, and modular design for superior performance, security, and isolation. Because it enforces the principle of least authority, BedRock is able to guarantee that most attacks are not possible to begin with. Our secure architecture keeps all critical functions, including Active Security and Policy Enforcement, below the OS-reachable attack surface, thereby fully protecting the OS and its applications.

Security

BedRock Security is enabled without a cooperating operating system or application, eliminating the attack surface of the components. Based on formal verification, the capability-based system ensures resources can only be accessed when explicitly enabled. With this level of security embedded into the BedRock Hypervisor, users can run the software stack from the OS and up without modification beyond their life cycle, while still preventing attacks.

Unmodified Guest OS & Applications

The BedRock Hypervisor is designed to run unmodified guest operating systems without the need to recompile the kernel or any application. Powered by formal methods, the Hypervisor cannot be breached, and, therefore, is not part of the attack vector. The fundamental hardware abstraction layer can leverage hardware features while concealing them from the OS, increasing system security.

 

No Vendor Lock-In

The BedRock Hypervisor includes a business-friendly open source license. This prevents vendor lock-in, provides freedom of choice, and prohibits intellectual property contamination. Rather than create a dependency, BedRock Systems is committed to community-driven projects and collaboration.
