Kernux

Kernux is a fully kernel-mode http-daemon for Linux. Currently Kernux is in it's developing stage. Similiar developments in the same area were khttpd by Arjan van de van and Tux web-server by Ingo Molnar. Khttpd was included in the linux testing kernel 2.5 by Linus Torvalds. But it was actually not in kernel-mode of operation. Also it handled dynamic requests which is assumed to be insecure for the server OS by the Linux kernel developers. Tux is another implementation of kernel mode http-daemon, being developed by RedHat. The developer is Ingo Molnar, the creator of O(n) scheduler, which control the procsses from Linux kernel version 7.2 onwards.
