HAB enabled or not?

Hi all,

          I am working on HAB feature of imx6. I just want to know, how the ROM will know, if HAB is enabled or not? Will ROM check for  HW_OCOTP_CFG5 fuse or SRK fuses to check if HAB is enabled or not?

 

While testing, I have not fused both the above things (and by default, HAB is in open configuration), but enabled secure boot on u-boot (by defining CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT macro). When I tried booting the resultant u-boot.imx(without adding CSF data), some HAB events are printed on the console. I saw from the u-boot source code, that if "CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT" is defined, call "get_hab_status"  and so it prints the HAB events. My question, is the HAB check really performed or it just prints some spurious HAB events on the console since I have not fused either HW_OCOTP_CFG5 nor SRK fuses.
