Hi, I am trying to use the blob enc / blob dec command available in the U-Boot source code provided by NXP on my i.MX6Q module. However, I obtain the follownig output:

=> mw.b 14000000 0 16                         

=> md.b 14000000 16                           

14000000: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00    ................

14000010: 00 00 00 00 00 00                                  ......

=> blob enc $loadaddr 0x12001000 32 0x14000000

Hi jdepedro

what  uboot version is used in the case, nxp uboot-imx ?

For enabling uboot security functions one can look at configurations

descibed in

uboot-imx.git - Freescale i.MX u-boot Tree

Best regards

Hi igorpadykov,

thanks for your quick answer!

Yes, I am using the last NXP U-Boot release based on v2015.04 for i.MX6Q. I have enabled all the configuration options that you said:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_SEC_COMPAT 4 /* HAB version */
CONFIG_FSL_CAAM
CONFIG_CMD_DEKBLOB

CONFIG_SYS_FSL_LE

and also

CONFIG_CMD_BLOB

which is needed in order to enable the blob command.

Could you confirm whether the usage example that I give is correct, and whether there is any error in the job descriptor which appears written? Thanks

Edit: by the way, just in case it helps to discard other problems, I have been successful using signed and signed + encrypted U-Boot images.

I used this guide with success with a linux kernel 3.15, now I upgraded to 4.1.15, and when it's enabled "Freescale CAAM-Multicore driver backend", the kernel has no errors, but at runtime it doesn't start, it freeze after a while. There are known issue on such a problem?

I had a similar problem and it was some register access during caam probe. Moving some clock enabling solve it for me.

Actually we verify on the 4.1.15.  Please make sure you are using NXP official BSP.

If you are not using NXP reference, please check the system desgin including software and hardware. CMA size maybe need to be changed for your hardware.

BTW, NXP never release BSP with Linux kernel 3.15.
