Session Abstract

Trusted Firmware-M (TF-M) is an implementation of Platform Security Architecture (PSA) for M class processors. TF-M includes a couple of secure services. Many partners want to take advantage of that to extend their PSA features.

Our design is to extend TF-M’s services to Zephyr based dual-core SoC. A Zephyr instance runs in secure core with secure services, another Zephyr instance runs in non-secure core which can call secure services. For this solution, the first step is to modularize secure services in TF-M and remove service platform dependencies. Then start them as Zephyr threads in secure core. And at last, implement IPC interface for the service requests from non-secure core to secure core by leveraging openAMP which is supported in Zephyr. This session will discuss the TF-M secure services modularization, running secure services in Zephyr and the IPC implementation.
