17.3. Security in multi-core systems

Each core in a multi-core system has the same security features as described in this chapter. Any number of the cores in the cluster can be executing in the Secure world at any point in time, and cores are able to transition between the worlds independently of each other. Additional registers control whether Normal world code can modify Snoop Control Unit (SCU) settings. Similarly, the GIC that distributes prioritized interrupts across the multi-core cluster must be configured to be aware of security concerns.
