#2447 F33 Self-Contained Change: Support PARSEC
Closed: Accepted 14 days ago by decathorpe. Opened a month ago by bcotton.

PARSEC is the Platform AbstRaction for SECurity, an open-source initiative to provide a common API to hardware security and cryptographic services in a platform-agnostic way. This abstraction layer keeps workloads decoupled from physical platform details, enabling cloud-native delivery flows within the data center and at the edge. From a hardware perspective the PARSEC daemon can currerntly use a TPM2, HSM or an Arm TrustZone secure world application.


I would like to see this enabled at the base Fedora level, even if the software is only getting preinstalled on IoT Edition by default right now, but otherwise...

It will of course be available in all of Fedora, we may well enable it more widely but it's still quite a new standard so we're still working out some kinks. We're working with Arm and some of their hardware partners to prototype this in Fedora IoT, once the standard is stable we'll be looking to more widely enable it along with some (IMO anyway) some very useful features. Watch this space :)

The usual: please make sure the daemon doesn't use resources or log angrily if the hardware is unavailable ;)

@pbrobinson Basically, make sure the service unit presets are Fedora-wide rather than IoT edition specific. :wink:

After one week, I count the vote as (+6,0,-0). Processing the change as approved.
