The release introduces the new remote test infrastructure, improvements to integration with Mbed Crypto for PSA Crypto service, demonstrating secure debug using PSA ADAC on MuscaB1 and integrates the latest versions of Mbed Crypto and MCUBoot.

Release Highlights

Initial Attestation Service has started using the QCBOR library upstream project instead of an instance of QCBOR maintained in TF-M project. Plan is to also use the upstreamed t_cose as well in future.

More details can be found here. Testing of the release has been done on Open CI. The next release will be in November 2023. Any security fixes prior to the next release will be made available as patch releases in v1.8.x release branch.

About is an open source project implementing foundational software components for creating secure devices. Trusted Firmware provides a reference implementation of secure software for processors implementing both the A-Profile and M-Profile Arm architecture. It provides SoC developers and OEMs with a reference trusted code base complying with the relevant Arm specifications. Trusted Firmware code is the preferred implementation of Arm specifications, allowing quick and easy porting to modern chips and platforms. This forms the foundations of a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) on application processors, or the Secure Processing Environment (SPE) of microcontrollers. is member driven and member funded.
