ARM TrustZone Technology Training

ARM Public Training Course

Location Date
AsiaPac - Shanghai, China April 21 - 23, 2015


This course is designed to give platform developers a complete overview of designing trusted systems with ARM TrustZone technology.

The course will introduce the security extensions to the v6Z and v7-A processors. Platform and software requirements to allow such operations as secure boot, DRM or Mobile Payment. The course discusses a complete trusted system including:

  • Secure boot
  • Secure monitor
  • Trusted kernel and applications
  • Normal world OS drivers
  • Normal world application development
  • Platform design
  • Certification

Practical worked examples based around a simple platform and example trusted system are used to highlight the topics discussed.


  • A working knowledge of the ARM application processors
  • Knowledge of programming in C
  • Experience of programming in assembler is useful but not essential
  • Some knowledge of embedded systems


Hardware and software system architects who need to understand the issues in developing trusted systems using the ARM TrustZone security extensions. The software development parts of this course make extensive use of the RealView software development tools. However, this material is relevant to users of 3rd party tools.
