This report describes the November 2010 Trusted Computing in Embedded Systems Workshop held at Carnegie Mellon University. This workshop brought together various groups concerned with advancing research into improving the trustworthiness in embedded systems. The workshop format provided the opportunity to focus on embedded systems while examining the application of related trust technologies in order to foster collaborative approaches and information exchange in this area. Presentations and discussion addressed the capabilities and limitations of effectively employing trusted hardware-enabled components in embedded systems. This included, but was not restricted to, the following areas: new research and development in enabling trust in embedded systems, methods and techniques for establishing trust in embedded systems, lessons learned from research and development projects on embedded systems security, and gaps in current research. The workshop resulted in identification of gaps in current research and recommendations for potential research directions.
