Hi there,

I am currently using the i.MX6Solo (Cortex-A9).

1. Could you please tell me how can I know which world the system is in? secure or normal world?

2. How to disable the Trustzone, is this possible?

Thank you!

Rui

Hi Rui

one can do it reading read SCR register, as in examples on

http://infocenter.arm.com/help/index.jsp?topic=/com.arm.doc.faqs/ka15417.html

Trustzone is security architecture extension and one may use or not use it, seems

it is not possible to disable it

Hi Igor,

Thank you for your help!

Yesterday I tried to read out the value of SCR register in CP15 C1, and the value was 0x00000000. The NS bit (0th bit, non-secure bit) was 0, so that the system was in the secure world. But I still got two questions.

[1] I checked the description from "Cortex-A9 Technical Reference Manual" Revision: r4p1, in page 4-6 (pdf page 55), the SCR register has two superscript notes, one says, "No access in Non-secure state.", another says "SCR[6] is not implemented, RAZ/WI.".

So Is there a SCR register in Cortex-A9's CP15 C1?

[2] How can I switch from the secure world to the normal world? What is the default world after startup?

Thank you again Igor!

Best Regards,

Rui
