Trusted Firmware M - v1.0-RC2

Trusted Firmware M provides a reference implementation of secure world software for ARMv8-M.

Note

The software implementation contained in this project is designed to be a reference implementation of the Platform Security Architecture (PSA). It currently does not implement all the features of that architecture, however we expect the code to evolve along with the specifications.

Terms TFM and TF-M are commonly used in documents and code and both refer to Trusted Firmware M. :doc:`Glossary </docs/glossary>` has the list of terms and abbreviations.

This project contains code from other projects as listed below. The code from external projects is limited to app and platform folders. The original license text is included in those source files.

  • The platform folder currently contains drivers imported from external project and the files have Apache 2.0 license.
  • The app folder contains files imported from CMSIS_5 project and the files have Apache 2.0 license.
  • The bl2 folder contains files imported from MCUBoot project and the files have Apache 2.0 license.

Note

Any code that has license other than BSD-3-Clause is kept in specific sub folders named ext so that it can isolated if required.

This Release

This release includes:

  • A Secure FW with support for PSA Level 1 and 2 isolation on Armv8-M.

  • The Interfaces exposed by the Secure FW to NS side.

  • A secure fw model with NS application example.

  • Secure services running within this SPE:

    • Secure Storage Service (PSA Protected Storage API - 1.0-beta-2)
    • Attestation (PSA API 1.0-beta-0)
    • Crypto Service (PSA API 1.0-beta-1)
    • TF-M Audit Log
    • Platform Service
    • Internal Trusted Storage (PSA API 1.0.0)
  • PSA IPC support

  • Support for Armv8-M mainline and baseline

  • Testcases running baremetal and with RTX to test the functionality.

  • BL2 bootloader for image authentication based on SHA256 and RSA-3072 digital signature.

  • Build system based on cmake, supporting armclang and GNU Arm.

Getting Started

Prerequisite

Trusted Firmware M provides a reference implementation of PSA specifications. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with PSA concepts and terms. PSA specifications are currently not available in the public domain.

The current TF-M implementation specifically targets TrustZone for ARMv8-M so a good understanding of the v8-M architecture is also necessary. A good place to get started with ARMv8-M is developer.arm.com.

Really getting started

Trusted Firmware M source code is available on git.trustedfirmware.org

To build & run TF-M:

To port TF-M to a another system or OS, follow the :doc:`OS Integration Guide </docs/user_guides/tfm_integration_guide>`
