The increasing ubiquity of Xilinx devices makes protecting the intellectual property (IP) within them as important as protecting the data processed by the device. As security threats have increased, the range of security threats or potential weaknesses that must be considered to deploy secure products has grown as well.

The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC provides the following features to help secure applications running on the SoC:

  • Encryption and authentication of configuration files.
  • Hardened crypto accelerators for use by the user application.
  • Secure methods of storing cryptographic keys.

Methods for detecting and responding to tamper events. See the Security chapter of the Zynq UltraScale+ Device Technical Reference Manual (UG1085) for more information.
