    Note: The Intel® Quartus® Prime software message window provides information about the success or failure of the key programming operation. Once the .ekp is programmed, .pof can be programmed separately. To retain the security key in the internal flash that had been programmed through the .ekp, continue with the following steps.
  8. Select the .pof to be programmed to the selected device.
  9. Check only the functional block that need to be updated at child level for CFM and UFM. Do not check operation at the parent level when using Programmer GUI.
