Target of this port

This port adds the support that FreeRTOS applications can call the secure services in Trusted Firmware M(TF-M) through Platform Security Architecture (PSA) API based on the ARM Cortex-M33 platform.

The Platform Security Architecture (PSA) makes it quicker, easier and cheaper to design security into a device from the ground up. PSA is made up of four key stages: analyze, architect, implement, and certify. See PSA Resource Page.

TF-M is an open source project. It provides a reference implementation of PSA for Arm M-profile architecture. Please get the details from this link.

Derivation of the source code

  • os_wrapper_freertos.c The implementation of APIs which are defined in os_wrapper\mutex.h by TF-M (tag: TF-Mv1.2.0). The implementation is based on FreeRTOS mutex type semaphore.

Usage notes

To build a project based on this port:

  • Step 1: build the secure image. Please follow the Build the Secure Side section for details.
  • Step 2: build the nonsecure image. Please follow the Build the Non-Secure Side for details.

Build the Secure Side

Get the TF-M source code

See the link to get the source code. This port is based on TF-M version tag: TF-Mv1.2.0.

Build TF-M

Please refer to this link to build the secure side. Note: CONFIG_TFM_ENABLE_CTX_MGMT must be configured as “OFF” when building TF-M.

Build the Non-Secure Side

Please copy all the files in freertos_kernel\portable\GCC\ARM_CM33_NTZ into the freertos_kernel\portable\ThirdParty\GCC\ARM_CM33_TFM folder before using this port. Note that TrustZone is enabled in this port. The TF-M runs in the Secure Side.

Please call the API tfm_ns_interface_init() which is defined in tfm_ns_interface.c at the very beginning of your application. Otherwise, it will always fail when calling a TF-M service in the Nonsecure Side.

Configuration in FreeRTOS kernel

  • configRUN_FREERTOS_SECURE_ONLY This macro should be configured as 0. In this port, TF-M runs in the Secure Side while FreeRTOS Kernel runs in the Non-Secure Side.

  • configENABLE_FPU The setting of this macro is decided by the setting in Secure Side which is platform-specific. If the Secure Side enables Non-Secure access to FPU, then this macro can be configured as 0 or 1. Otherwise, this macro can only be configured as 0.

  • configENABLE_TRUSTZONE This macro should be configured as 0 because TF-M doesn't use the secure context management function of FreeRTOS. New secure context management might be introduced when TF-M supports multiple secure context.

Integrate TF-M Non-Secure interface with FreeRTOS project

To enable calling TF-M services by the Non-Secure Side, the files below should be included in the FreeRTOS project and built together.

  • files in trusted-firmware-m\build\install\export\tfm\src These files contain the implementation of PSA Functional Developer APIs which can be called by Non-Secure Side directly and PSA Firmware Framework APIs in the IPC model. These files should be taken as part of the Non-Secure source code.
  • files in trusted-firmware-m\build\install\export\tfm\include These files are the necessary header files to call TF-M services.
  • trusted-firmware-m\build\install\export\tfm\lib\s_veneers.o This object file contains all the Non-Secure callable functions exported by TF-M and it should be linked when generating the Non-Secure image.
