Abstract : This report describes an end-to-end architecture for establishing end-to-end trust. Including computing platforms, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and actuators, mobile devices and servers; cloud based, stand alone, and traditional mainframes. The prototype developed demonstrated that hardware extensions, along with corresponding firmware can provide strong isolation for secure virtual machines and be transparent to unmodified virtual machines. For mobile platforms we developed and prototyped an architecture supporting separation of personalities on the same platform, safeguarding enterprise from personal data in a bi-directional manner. Lastly we demonstrated IoT sensor and actuator security using trusted security.
