Abstract [en]

The basic premis of this report is to explain the relation of kernel space and user space. It will show how the processor and computer memory work together with the operating system to protect operating system routines from misuse by user programs. After reading through this the reader should have an understanding of what kernel space is, how it is protected and how user programs gain access to its contents in a controlled manner. Fuse is used as an example in the conclusion, explaining how that particular application can be used to implement a simple dependency tracking overlay in a filesystem.
