Most small embedded Linux systems will not use a widely known desktop style Linux distro. Embedded systems developers will tend to select specific components that exactly match the target host, such as bootloaders, kernels, and root filesystems. The application(s) that run on the embedded host will normally be proprietary. The kernel may be heavily customized and include drivers for custom target hardware, and the root filesystem may be completely custom built. On larger embedded hosts, the same may apply, or they may load a full or partial publicly available distro. In those cases, I would expect the spectrum of distros used to be similarly diverse as one would find on desktops and servers.

Look at;
excerpt from

Secure OS Partners

A trusted system requires trusted software and trusted hardware to work together. ARM partners with well-known third party suppliers who can provide the appropriate small, certifiable and trusted OS.The Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) requires a well-designed applications processor (for example, one that has followed the recommendations of the TrustZone Ready Program), a Trusted Boot process and a Trusted OS to provide the trusted services and APIs for services.
ARM recommends Trusted OS solutions from Trusted OS suppliers that are members of GlobalPlatform and are working towards standardizing TEE APIs and libraries
Slackwarearm on the Raspberry Pi for a small system.

Look at for additional OS for the platform.

Hope this helps!
