Secure bootloader in Windows Embedded Compact 7 - how? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I am trying to implement secure bootloader in WEC7 and having serious difficulties.

    It look like SBL (secure bootloader support) was partially taken away.

    Strange thing is that some parts of SBL are still present in distribution

    dumpkey.exe and imagehash.exe tools are still there and look like they are still doing their job.

    But I don't see neither OAL_BLcommon_Secure.lib nor SBLmincrypt.lib!

    There is even an SBLExample in WEC7 tree (WINCE700\public\ossvcs\oak\Samples\SBL\SBLExample) which supposed to demonstrate of how this thing supposed to be coded.

    Guess what? It cannot be compiled because it relies on headers/libraries which are missing from from very the same WEC7 installation!

    All the documentation about SBL also refers to WINCE6 and not a word about winEC7...

    Why it is so abandoned and how do we supposed to implement SBL now?

    Thanks,

    Alexey

  • Hi Alexey,

    Can you give more detail as to the failure and how you are using the code?  I see quite a bit of detail in CE 6 at WinCE600\platform\mainstoneiii\src\bootloader\secure_eboot.  Have you reviewed that folder & BSP?

    Sincerely,
