Enabling Arm Confidential Compute Architecture (CCA) on Open Source

June 6, 2:30 PM - 2:50 PM
Grand Ballroom Salon B

Over the past year, Linaro has been deeply involved in enabling the Arm Confidential Compute Architecture (CCA) on various open-source projects.

Working with Arm and other companies in the community, we have focused on ensuring that firmware, operating systems, virtual machine monitors, and container management environments can work correctly with Arm CCA.

Our goal has been to provide the basic support to run Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs), which are referred to as Realms within the CCA specification, and to ensure that we have a cohesive attestation verification story.

During this session, we will highlight our progress to date in many projects, including TrustedFirmware-A, EDK2, Linux, QEMU, Kata Containers, and Confidential Containers. Additionally, we will discuss what the next steps are in our roadmap.
