188.8.131.52. AES Encryption Protection
The Intel® MAX® 10 design security feature provides the following security protection for your designs:
- Helps protect against copying—the non-volatile key is securely stored in the Intel® MAX® 10 devices and cannot be read through any interface. Without this key, attackers are unable to decrypt the encrypted configuration image.
- Helps resist reverse engineering—reverse engineering from an encrypted configuration file is very difficult and time consuming because the file requires decryption.
- Helps defend against tampering—after you enable the JTAG Secure and Encrypted POF (EPOF) only, the Intel® MAX® 10 device can only accept configuration files encrypted with the same key. Additionally, configuration through the JTAG interface is blocked.
