Distributed Operating Systems

Due to the forthcoming retirement of Prof. Härtig, availability of exam appointments will be limited after the summer exam period.

Topics

The Distributed Operating Systems lecture continues and consolidates the topics of the basic course Operating Systems and Security. It is particularly focused on presenting a balanced combination of distributed systems in-use as well as research projects and their underlying construction principles.

The lecture will cover the following aspects:
  • Scalability and Fault Tolerance
  • Memory Consistency and Synchronization in Parallel Systems
  • Security in Distributed Systems and Trusted Computing
On July 1 2019, we will have a double lecture, which will start at 9:40am in APB 3105. We move to E08 after a break at 11:10am.

Slides

Slides will be published here shortly before the lectures.

  1. Scalability and DNS
  2. Parallel Systems Software: High Performance Computing, Additional slides (MPI), Additional literature: Paper 1, Paper 2
  3. Distributed File Systems
  4. Trusted Computing
  5. Architecture-level security vulnerabilities
  6. Sandboxing
  7. Synchronisation in Parallel Systems
