Abstract:

The objective of this document is to begin to provide details and design issues that may arise while integrating Secret Protected SP with the SecureCore hardware and the SecureCore architecture. This document describes the use of cryptographic hardware such as SP and the Trusted Platform Module TPM within the context of the SecureCore project to provide cryptographic services. The assumptions about the architecture, hardware, software and usage of the SecureCore device are described. The hardware requirements for virtualization of SP and how the virtualized SP is integrated into and used in the SecureCore architecture are presented.
