XMHF is an eXtensible and Modular Hypervisor Framework that strives to be a comprehensible and flexible platform for performing hypervisor research and development. The framework allows others to build custom (security-sensitive) hypervisor-based solutions (called "hypapps").

XMHF is designed to achieve three goals – modular extensibility, automated verification, and high performance.

XMHF advocates a "rich" single-guest execution model where the hypervisor framework supports only a single-guest and allows the guest direct access to all performance-critical system devices and device interrupts.

XMHF currently runs on recent multicore x86 hardware virtualized platforms with support for dynamic root of trust and nested (2-dimensional) paging. The framework is capable of running unmodified legacy multiprocessor capable OSes such as Windows and Linux.
