TF-M Secure Partition Sample¶
A Secure Partition is an isolated module that resides in TF-M. It exposes a number of functions or “secure services” to other partitions and/or to the non-secure firmware. TF-M already contains standard partitions such as crypto, protected_storage, or firmware_update, but it’s also possible to create your own partitions.
This sample creates a dummy secure partition and secure service for TF-M and instructs the TF-M build system to build it into the secure firmware. The dummy secure service is then called in the main file (in the non-secure firmware).
This dummy partition has a single secure service, which can index one of 5 dummy secrets inside the partition, and retrieve a hash of the secret.
The partition is located in the
dummy_partition directory. It contains the partition sources, build files and build configuration files.
The partition is built by the TF-M build system, refer to TF-M Build System for more details.
For more information on how to add custom secure partitions refer to TF-M’s guide: https://tf-m-user-guide.trustedfirmware.org/docs/integration_guide/services/tfm_secure_partition_addition.html
When adapting this partition for your own purposes, please change all occurences of “dummy_partition”, “DUMMY_PARTITION”, “dp”, and “DP” to your own partition name. Also, look through both the secure and non-secure CMakeLists.txt file and make relevant changes, as well as the yaml files inside “partition”.
Building and Running¶
This sample can be built with or without CONFIG_TFM_IPC, since it contains code for both.
