Securing the Future of Authentication with ARM TrustZone-based Trusted Execution Environment and Fast Identity Online (FIDO)

November 06, 2015 // By Rod Coombs, ARM
Hardware-based security is needed to help protect FIDO from malicious attack. Assets such as cryptographic keys, sensitive processes and the capture of authenticator data should be protected from malicious attack and the integrity of the system needs to be maintained. This paper introduces how ARM TrustZone technology provides the hardware isolation necessary for a GlobalPlatform Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and how this security layer is ideally suited to secure FIDO based authentication.
