This document describes a set of preliminary high level security requirements for the SecureCore hardware base (SCHW). A SecureCore (SC) component is anticipated to be a mobile networked device capable of operating in different modes with different levels of trust. To promote rapid user acceptability, it is essential that security features implemented in the SC architecture must minimize changes to existing application-level software. The SCHW security requirements are specified in terms of the following capabilities: hardware virtualization, protected processing environment, protected memory management, secure I/O channels, secure boot, secure system maintenance, concealed execution mode, trusted platform attestation and hardware isolation of security critical functions.-- p. i.
