This test is provided to insure the mechanism is working properly as all other tests are liekly to fail otherwise. The bootloader is usually sophisticated enough to perform the required amount of device initialization and image loading. In addition to being a standalone emulator the QEMU sources are also the foundation for other emulated environments. Thursday, December 6, Currently, the test provides the necessary infrastructure for validating the proper operation of code executing in the secure and non-secure worlds.

The bootloader is also responsible for loading the non-secure image as well as eventually booting the non-secure software by going through monitor mode. Secondly, to stress-test the added QEMU functionality to insure proper operation. Achieving backwards compatibility and allowing easy future use of Arm TrustZone, we are introducing the following configuration changes:.

Fabian needed to relinquish ownership of the TrustZone patches so he could concentrate on school work. Without this, it is not possible to take advantage of the TrustZone features. The secure world infrastructure is capable of executing tests in either supervisor PL1 or user PL0 mode. QEMU is open source and freely available, making it a cost-effective alternative to requiring actual hardware for development of secure software.


Firstly, to provide a concrete real-world use case. At the same time, malicious apps are also flooding mobile app stores in hopes of exploiting security holes to take advantage of unsuspecting users. The only tests included and directly executed by the secure world component are preliminary checks for security extension support and validation of the initial processor state.

The code evolved over its two year development period but never made it into upstream QEMU. Although minimal, there was slight overlap in the naming of and method for accessing common security related resources. QEMU is the ideal solution to addressing these limitations.

Test for the secure to non-secure world handshake. One example would be emulating a virtual Arm Linux system on an x86 host. Shortly after the initial request for comments, Samsung orphaned the patches leaving the effort unmaintained.

Arm TrustZone in QEMU

Use of the ddi04406c command line option to run Linux on a QEMU virt machine model will result in it booting into non-secure state by default. In addition to the processor extensions, Johannes patches also included infrastructure and support for the Arm TrustZone TZC and BP peripheral controllers, virtualization register and exception support as well as extensions to GDB support for debugging secure registers.

First, existing protection and isolation principles may not work. Bitmain joins Linaro 96Boards Steerin Available since Armv6, the Arm Security Extensions define optional hardware security features for the Arm processor as well as other components of an Arm SoC. SCD is set and no virtualization is enabled.

Testing QEMU Arm TrustZone – Linaro

Monday, September 17, Each test function is dispatched to a specific processor mode and srm state from non-secure user mode through a series of SVC and SMC calls. This division allows for strict hardware-based isolation between software executing ddi04406c the normal non-secure world and the secure world, without the need for dedicated security hardware.


This allows a true secure environment to be dvi0406c in QEMU by allowing both secure and non-secure bootloading stages as directed by the user. Two weeks to go to the HPC Workshop! Currently, the tests are restricted to the Arm Versatile Express and Virt machine models, but can be expanded in the future to include other models.

This option allows machine emulation to begin at reset by loading and executing a raw image at a known starting address.

The isolation between the normal and secure worlds is driven largely by an additional security state incorporated into many aspects atm the architecture. As you could imagine, using such an environment for test purposes would be fairly involved and fraught with variances that ultimately compromise the repeatability of the testing.

Thoughts after Autoware 96Boards Demo This option is unavailable on all other machine models. Report an Issue Edit on Github.

Today, development is ongoing, with Linaro awaiting review comments on version 4 of the original patchset. The primary responsibility of the secure world component is to facilitate the execution of test cases directed at it. In addition, the secure world component includes the primary bootloader and hardware initialization for the secure world as well as abort handlers for catching and reporting expected and unexpected exceptions.
