Running Virtualized Native Drivers in User Mode Linux

V. Guffens and G. Bastin, Université Catholique de Louvain


A simulation infrastructure for wireless network emulation based on User Mode Linux and on the virtualisation of the hostap driver is proposed. The interconnection of these components is first described and the architecture of the resulting network emulator is explained. Two practical applications are then detailed: the testing of an implementation of the AODV routing protocol in a highly realistic environment and the study of the interactions between the hostap driver and the card it drives.
