Why is it so important?
There is a massive demand for trusted services and applications on our partner’s chips and this requires a security foundation that is built into the chips and common low level software. ARM is committed to making this support free and available to all. These design documents, checklists and security guidelines enable everyone to get access to the latest thinking on security fundamentals that have been shaped by many industry discussions. The simple legal agreement that provides access to the documents enables companies to offer suggestions for continued improvement, so this is really an example of the ARM partnership in action. Security engineering starts with the architecture and understanding which threats you are defending against. ARM has had many discussions across multiple markets and all parts of the value chain to create a single set of security documents that can be used as a design target for chip and device platform engineers. Previously, designers struggled with creating a comprehensive and achievable set of security design requirements that covered the needs of different industries. ARM is in a position to bring together our input and industry discussions into the program deliverables covering the main use cases for application processors: content protection, payment and enterprise. This information is now ready for easy download.
Information security requires hardware, software and services to be integrated.. Fortunately organizations such as GlobalPlatform and Trusted Computing Group (TCG) are working together on security APIs, compliance and certification issues.
Today, we are announcing that the first release of TrustZone Ready Program. You can also receive an early preview of next year’s Trusted Base System Architecture that adds the hot topic of content protection. The preview will enable companies signed up to the program to provide comments and improvements before a wider release next year.
If you are interested in joining the free program you can find out more about it here or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
