1.3. Root of Trust (RoT)

The Intel® MAX® 10 BMC acts as a Root of Trust (RoT) and enables the secure remote system update feature of the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000. The RoT includes features that may help prevent the following:
  • Loading or executing of unauthorized code or designs
  • Disruptive operations attempted by unprivileged software, privileged software, or the host BMC
  • Unintended execution of older code or designs with known bugs or vulnerabilities by enabling the BMC to revoke authorization

The Intel® FPGA PAC N3000 BMC also enforces several other security policies relating to access through various interfaces,as well as protecting the on-board flash through write rate limitation. Please refer to the Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000 Security User Guide for information on RoT and security features of the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000.
