Yocto Layers

The meta-cassini repository provides three layers compatible with the Yocto Project, in the following sub-directories:

  • meta-cassini-bsp

    A Yocto layer which holds board-specific recipes or append files that either:

    • will not be upstreamed (Cassini specific modifications)

    • have not been upstreamed yet

    • For the N1SDP hardware target platform, this layer currently extends the n1sdp machine definition from the meta-arm-bsp layer with additional Trusted Services (crypto, storage, internal trusted storage, attestation , block storage)

  • meta-cassini-distro

    A Yocto distribution layer providing top-level and general policies for the Cassini distribution images.

  • meta-cassini-tests

    A Yocto software layer with recipes that include run-time tests to validate Cassini functionalities.

Layer Dependency Overview

The following diagram illustrates the layers which are integrated by the Cassini project, which are further expanded on below. The layer revisions are related to the Cassini v1.1.0 release.


Cassini distribution depends on the following layer dependency sources:

Additional layers are conditionally required, depending on the specific Cassini distribution image being built and the platform being targeted.

layers: meta-arm, meta-arm-bsp, meta-arm-toolchain
branch: nanbield

  • Cassini SDK distribution images require meta-arm and meta-arm-toolchain, as the gator-daemon package is installed on the rootfs.

  • Cassini firmware images built for the Corstone-1000 or N1SDP target platforms requires meta-arm, meta-arm-bsp, and meta-arm-toolchain.

  • Cassini firmware images built for the Corstone-1000 also use efi-secure-boot and its dependencies to generate certificates for UEFI capsule images
