L4Re – L4 Runtime Environment
Initial Memory Allocator and Factory

The purpose of the memory allocator and of the factory is to provide the application with the means to allocate memory (in the form of data spaces) and kernel objects respectively.

An initial memory allocator and an initial factory are accessible via the initial L4Re environment.

The factory is a kernel object that provides the ability to create new kernel objects dynamically. A factory imposes a resource limit for kernel memory, and is thus a means to prevent denial of service attacks on kernel resources. A factory can also be used to create new factory objects.
