As described in the Boot Time Security, FPGA-only devices also need to maintain security while deploying them in the field. AMD tools provide embedded IP modules to achieve the Encryption and Authentication, is part of programming logic. Bootgen extends the secure image creation (Encrypted and/or Authenticated) support for FPGA family devices from 7 series and beyond. This chapter details some of the examples of how Bootgen can be used to encrypt and authenticate a bitstream. Bootgen support for FPGAs is available in the standalone Bootgen install.
Note: Only bitstreams from 7 series devices and beyond are supported.
