Securing the IoT with ARM TrustZone for the Cortex-M

Jacob Beningo  (President, Beningo Embedded Group)

Location: 107C

Date: Thursday, May 16

Time: 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Track: ESC Boston, Track C: IoT & Connected Devices, ESC Boston, Track B: Embedded Software Design & Verification

Vault Recording: TBD

Securing embedded systems has become a critical task for developers. It is nearly impossible to turn on the news and not hear about yet another major security breach. In this session, attendees will become familiar with the design methodologies necessary to secure their embedded systems using the new Arm TrustZone for Cortex-M processors. We will examine important concepts, such as Secure and Non-secure domains, debugging a secure application, secure boot, trust zone use cases and more. This session will provide (a) hands-on (demonstration), using (Microchip SAM L11, NXP LPC556x, ST Microelectronics STM32L5).


- Introduction to TrustZone
- Defining the Secure and Non-secure world
- Example use cases to secure an application with TrustZone
- How to debug a TrustZone-based application
- Best practices for securing an embedded system
- Recommendations for next steps

Intended Audience

The audience are developers who are looking to start a new IoT design that requires security. These could be engineers at any level of their career.
