Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. EROS is an operating system developed by The EROS Group, LLC., the Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Pennsylvania. Features include automatic data and process persistence, some preliminary real-time support, and capability-based security. EROS is purely a research operating system, and was never deployed in real world use. As of 2005, development has stopped in favor of two successor systems, CapROS and Coyotos. The overriding goal of the EROS system is to provide strong support at the operating system level for the efficient restructuring of critical applications into small communicating components. Each component can communicate with the others only through protected interfaces, and is isolated from the rest of the system. A "protected interface," in this context, is one that is enforced by the lowest level part of the operating system. The kernel is the only portion of the system that can move information from one process to another. It also has complete control of the machine and cannot be bypassed.
