A “Trusted Execution Environment” (TEE) provides an environment for processing data securely, protected from normal platform applications. This talk is intended as an introduction to Trusted Execution, and the open-source Trusted Execution Environment OP-TEE in particular. It introduces the GlobalPlatform TEE Specifications, explains how Trusted Execution is implemented by Arm TrustZone and OP-TEE, and outlines how trusted boot software manages the secure boot of an Arm platform.
