High Assurance Boot (HAB) for i.MX6 CPUs

To enable the authenticated or encrypted boot mode of U-Boot, it is
required to set the proper configuration for the target board. This
is done by adding the following configuration in in the proper config
file (e.g. include/configs/mx6qarm2.h)

#define CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT

In addition, the U-Boot image to be programmed into the
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
boot media needs to be properly constructed, i.e. it must contain a
proper Command Sequence File (CSF).

The Initial Vector Table contains a pointer to the CSF. Please see
doc/README.imximage for how to prepare u-boot.imx.

The CSF itself is being generated by Freescale HAB tools.

mkimage will output additional information about "HAB Blocks"
which can be used in the Freescale tooling to authenticate U-Boot
(entries in the CSF file).

(1)	Size of area in file u-boot.imx to sign
	This area should include the IVT, the Boot Data the DCD
	and U-Boot itself.
(2)	Start of area in u-boot.imx to sign
(3)	Start of area in RAM to authenticate

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT currently enables only an additional command
'hab_status' in U-Boot to retrieve the HAB status and events. This
can be useful while developing and testing HAB.

Commands to generate a signed U-Boot using Freescale HAB tools:
cst --o U-Boot_CSF.bin < U-Boot.CSF
objcopy -I binary -O binary --pad-to 0x2000 --gap-fill=0x00 \
	U-Boot_CSF.bin U-Boot_CSF_pad.bin
cat u-boot.imx U-Boot_CSF_pad.bin > u-boot-signed.imx

NOTE: U-Boot_CSF.bin needs to be padded to the value specified in
the imximage.cfg file.

Setup U-Boot Image for Encrypted Boot
-------------------------------------
An authenticated U-Boot image is used as starting point for
Encrypted Boot. The image is encrypted by Freescale's Code
Signing Tool (CST). The CST replaces only the image data of
u-boot.imx with the encrypted data. The Initial Vector Table,
DCD, and Boot data, remains in plaintext.

The image data is encrypted with a Encryption Key (DEK).
Therefore, this key is needed to decrypt the data during the
booting process. The DEK is protected by wrapping it in a Blob,
which needs to be appended to the U-Boot image and specified in
the CSF file.

The DEK blob is generated by an authenticated U-Boot image with
the dek_blob cmd enabled. The image used for DEK blob generation
needs to have the following configurations enabled:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_SEC_COMPAT    4 /* HAB version */
CONFIG_FSL_CAAM
CONFIG_CMD_DEKBLOB
78
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_SEC_LE
79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103

Note: The encrypted boot feature is only supported by HABv4 or
greater.

The dek_blob command then can be used to generate the DEK blob of
a DEK previously loaded in memory. The command is used as follows:

dek_blob <DEK address> <Output Address> <Key Size in Bits>
example: dek_blob 0x10800000 0x10801000 192

The resulting DEK blob then is used to construct the encrypted
U-Boot image. Note that the blob needs to be transferred back
to the host.Then the following commands are used to construct
the final image.

objcopy -I binary -O binary --pad-to 0x2000 --gap-fill=0x00 \
    U-Boot_CSF.bin U-Boot_CSF_pad.bin
cat u-boot.imx U-Boot_CSF_pad.bin > u-boot-signed.imx
objcopy -I binary -O binary --pad-to <blob_dst> --gap-fill=0x00 \
    u-boot-signed.imx u-boot-signed-pad.bin
cat u-boot-signed-pad.imx DEK_blob.bin > u-boot-encrypted.imx

    NOTE: u-boot-signed.bin needs to be padded to the value
    equivalent to the address in which the DEK blob is specified
    in the CSF.
