  • Publication number: 20210006416
    Abstract: Embodiments include systems, methods, computer readable media, and devices configured to, for a first processor of a platform, generate a platform root key; create a data structure to encapsulate the platform root key, the data structure comprising a platform provisioning key and an identification of a registration service; and transmit, on a secure connection, the data structure to the registration service to register the platform root key for the first processor of the platform. Embodiments include systems, methods, computer readable media, and devices configured to store a device certificate received from a key generation facility; receive a manifest from a platform, the manifest comprising an identification of a processor associated with the platform; and validate the processor using a stored device certificate.

  • Patent number: 6135651
    Abstract: A software patch method and apparatus using a content addressable memory (CAM) to produce a code change enable signal when a program memory address matches a patch memory address, to cause program execution of modem operation to be diverted to the patch code when an address comparison hit is achieved. The patching apparatus includes a program memory for applying program instructions onto a data bus for execution, unless an address comparison of a program address and a patch address causes application of a substitute address onto the data bus.
