Earlier today, Linaro Community Projects Division, the division of Linaro managing open source community projects, announced the Trusted Firmware open governance project.  The Trusted Firmware project is designed to reduce porting and integration work across the ecosystem by creating reusable reference implementations for SoC and Trusted OS developers at trustedfirmware.org.

It provides a reference implementation of Secure World software for Armv7, Armv8-A and Armv8-M architectures. This means that SoC developers and OEMs now have a reference trusted code base complying with the relevant Arm specifications.

Membership is open to both Linaro members and non-members, with governance being overseen by a board of member representatives. This board currently consists of Arm, Texas Instruments, Google LLC, Cypress Semiconductor and Linaro. Data I/O joins the project as a General Member.
