  • Patent number: 11409534
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a system receives, at a host system a public attestation key (PK_ATT) or a signed PK_ATT from a data processing (DP) accelerator over a bus. The system verifies the PK_ATT using a public root key (PK_RK) associated with the DP accelerator. In response to successfully verifying the PK_ATT, the system transmits a kernel identifier (ID) to the DP accelerator to request attesting a kernel object stored in the DP accelerator. In response to the system receives a kernel digest or a signed kernel digest corresponding to the kernel object from the DP accelerator, verifying the kernel digest using the PK_ATT. The system sends the verification results to the DP accelerator for the DP accelerator to access the kernel object based on the verification results.
