[PATCH v3 00/11] Introduce STM32 Firewall framework

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Introduce STM32 Firewall framework for STM32MP1x and STM32MP2x
platforms. STM32MP1x(ETZPC) and STM32MP2x(RIFSC) Firewall controllers
register to the framework to offer firewall services such as access

This series of patches is a new approach on the previous STM32 system
bus, history is available here:

The need for such framework arises from the fact that there are now
multiple hardware firewalls implemented across multiple products.
Drivers are shared between different products, using the same code.
When it comes to firewalls, the purpose mostly stays the same: Protect
hardware resources. But the implementation differs, and there are
multiple types of firewalls: peripheral, memory, ... 

Some hardware firewall controllers such as the RIFSC implemented on
STM32MP2x platforms may require to take ownership of a resource before
being able to use it, hence the requirement for firewall services to
take/release the ownership of such resources.

On the other hand, hardware firewall configurations are becoming
more and more complex. These mecanisms prevent platform crashes
or other firewall-related incoveniences by denying access to some

The stm32 firewall framework offers an API that is defined in
firewall controllers drivers to best fit the specificity of each

For every peripherals protected by either the ETZPC or the RIFSC, the
firewall framework checks the firewall controlelr registers to see if
the peripheral's access is granted to the Linux kernel. If not, the
peripheral is configured as secure, the node is marked populated,
so that the driver is not probed for that device.

The firewall framework relies on the feature-domain-controller device
tree bindings: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/0c0a82bb-18ae-d057-562b.
It is used by peripherals to reference a domain controller, in this
case a firewall feature domain. The bus uses the ID referenced by
the feature-domains property to know where to look in the firewall
to get the security configuration for the peripheral. This allows
a device tree description rather than a hardcoded peripheral table
in the bus driver.

The STM32 ETZPC device is responsible for filtering accesses based on
security level, or co-processor isolation for any resource connected
to it.

The RIFSC is responsible for filtering accesses based on Compartment
ID / security level / privilege level for any resource connected to

STM32MP13/15/25 SoC device tree files are updated in this series to
implement this mecanism.

Changes in V2:

		- Add fw_devlink dependency for "feature-domains"

		- Corrected YAMLS errors highlighted by Rob's robot
		- Firewall controllers YAMLs no longer define the
		  maxItems for the "feature-domains" property
		- Renamed st,stm32-rifsc.yaml to
		- Fix examples in YAML files
		- Change feature-domains maxItems to 2 in firewall
		  consumer files as there should not be more than
		  2 entries for now
		- Declare "feature-domain-names" as an optional
		  property for firewall controllers child nodes.
		- Add missing "feature-domains" property declaration
		  in bosch,m_can.yaml and st,stm32-cryp.yaml files

	firewall framework:
		- Support multiple entries for "feature-domains"
		- Better handle the device-tree parsing using
		  phandle+args APIs
		- Remove "resource firewall" type
		- Add a field for the name of the firewall entry
		- Fix licenses
		- Add controller name
		- Driver is now a module_platform_driver
		- Fix license

		- Add controller name
		- Driver is now a module_platform_driver
		- Fix license

	Device trees:
		- Fix rifsc node name
		- Move the "ranges" property under the
		  "feature-domains" one

Changes in V3:

	Change incorrect ordering for bindings commits leading
	to an error while running
	"make DT_CHECKER_FLAGS=-m dt_binding_check"
