On June 23 Riscure's Eloi Sanfelix Gonzalez and independent TEE expert Cristofaro Mune presented at the second Euskalhack Security Congress in Spain. The topic of their joint work is "Secure initialization of TEEs: when secure boot falls short". It focuses on the essential role of system initialization for protecting Trusted Execution Environments. Research by Eloi and Cristofaro aims to define a more accurate security model for TEEs and extends requirements for a proper initialization beyond those of Secure Boot.

We are happy to share the slides from this presentation. You can view them below or at Riscure's Slideshare vault. Download the PDF here.
