Hi!

 

Does anybody have an idea, where the u-boot environment variables are stored?

Is it encrypted with u-boot? Why only U-Boot is marked as encrypted Data as shown here: https://community.nxp.com/docs/DOC-33214 

 

If the Board in closed mode, is it possible to read the environment variables without completely booting the Board?

 

I also want so save some application passwords, can anybody suggest some recommended ways to do it? Does it make sense to store it as u-boot environment variables?

 

Many thanks,
