The top of page 38 (1.2 Component Overview) reads:

"To enable secure applications, the SoC features an on-die Boot ROM
that is used to establish a hardware Root of Trust (RoT). The
immutable code located within the Boot ROM is used to initiate an
iterative firmware authentication process ensuring only trusted code
is executed when taking the platform out of reset."
