      Hi all

      Well, this really depends. What if the APIs are open, the specs are
      free etc. etc. BUT you have to get a signature on your code from
      micro^H^H^H^H^H a trusted party so the hardware chip can verify it.

      Did I misunderstand the technology, or is this how it's going to work?
