The increasing ubiquity of Xilinx devices makes protecting the intellectual property (IP) within them as important as protecting the data processed by the device. As security threats have increased, the range of security threats or potential weaknesses that must be considered to deploy secure products has grown as well. The Versal ACAP provides features to help secure applications. These features include:

  • Tamper monitoring and response
  • Secure key storage and management
  • User access to Xilinx hardware cryptographic accelerators

See Secure Boot Flow for details on system start-up secure boot flow.

For more information on security features, see Versal ACAP Security Manual (UG1508). This manual requires an active NDA to download from the Design Security Lounge.
