Security Handling
Security Disclosures
We disclose all security vulnerabilities we find, or are advised about, that are
relevant to Trusted Firmware-A. We encourage responsible disclosure of
vulnerabilities and inform users as best we can about all possible issues.
We disclose TF-A vulnerabilities as Security Advisories, all of which are listed
at the bottom of this page. Any new ones will, additionally, be announced as
issues in the project's `issue tracker`_ with the ``security-advisory`` tag. You
can receive notification emails for these by watching the "Trusted Firmware-A"
project at
Found a Security Issue?
Although we try to keep TF-A secure, we can only do so with the help of the
community of developers and security researchers.
.. warning::
If you think you have found a security vulnerability, please **do not**
report it in the `issue tracker`_ or on the `mailing list`_. Instead, please
follow the ` security incident process`_.
One of the goals of this process is to ensure providers of products that use
TF-A have a chance to consider the implications of the vulnerability and its
remedy before it is made public. As such, please follow the disclosure plan
outlined in the process. We do our best to respond and fix any issues quickly.
Afterwards, we encourage you to write-up your findings about the TF-A source
We will name and thank you in the :ref:`Change Log & Release Notes` distributed
with the source code and in any published security advisory.
