Samsung KNOX addresses platform security with a comprehensive three-pronged strategy to secure the system: Customizable Secure Boot*, ARM® TrustZone®-based Integrity Measurement Architecture (TIMA), and a kernel with built-in Security Enhancements for Android (SE for Android) access controls.
* Customizable Secure Boot availability varies depending on hardware specification TrustZone-based Integrity Measurement Architecture TIMA runs in the secure-world and provides continuous integrity monitoring of the Linux kernel. When TIMA detects that the integrity of the kernel or the boot loader is violated, it takes a policy-driven action in response. One of these policy actions disables the kernel and powers down the device. ARM and TrustZone are registered trade marks of ARM Limited in the EU and elsewhere. Security Enhancements for Android Security Enhancements for Android provides an enhanced mechanism to enforce the separation of information based on confidentiality and integrity requirements. Security Enhancements for Android isolates applications and data into different domains so that threats of tampering and bypassing of application security mechanisms are reduced while the amount of damage that can be caused by malicious or flawed applications is minimized.
