Creating a Secure Boot System

Creating a secure boot loader image entails the following high-level steps:

  1. Determine the required security level of the second-stage boot loader: signed for authentication, encrypted, or both.
  2. Generate the appropriate secure keys for authentication, encryption, or both.
  3. Generate and build the secure boot loader image.
  4. Program the secure keys in the Intel® Arria® 10 SoC device.
  5. Configure the security fuses for the desired device security settings.
  6. Program the secure boot image to the boot device.
