This session is about Arm's Secure Partition Manager (SPM) for A-class devices. The SPM is the reference open-source S-EL2 firmware implementation for the recently introduced Armv8.4-SecEL2 / Secure EL2 virtualization extensions. It is based on Google's Hafnium hypervisor now transitioned to trustedfirmware.org. It leverages the Platform Security Architecture Firmware Framework for A-class (PSA FF-A) specification. The presentation deals with brief history and use cases, SPM architecture, project status and plans.
