Whitepaper: Protecting OEM assets and ensuring firmware integrity through STM32 and open-source solutions

whitepaper banner stm32mpu



Regardless of the assets that need protection, security has always been difficult to implement. From end users to the engineering community and investors, the value chain has often shown some reluctance to accept and implement secure solutions.

In addition to the financial investments linked to development, OEMs must find innovative ways to accelerate the development phase in order to get their product to market more quickly and gain market share. To help companies reduce development time and costs, ST proposes a solution based on our mainlined STM32 MPU OpenSTLinux distribution, providing a chain of trust built around the Trusted Firmware-A (TF-A), OP-TEE and U-Boot open-source communities to ensure the integrity of OEM firmware.

Among the different security features provided by the STM32MP1 platform, this whitepaper focuses on implementing secure boot technology within embedded applications.
