Encrypted Firmware updates via USB

Recommended Posts

Thought this idea looked familiar from a TI app note.


Found it pretty quickly. "Crypto-Bootloader (CryptoBSL) for MSP430FR59xx and MSP430FR69xx MCUs" (SLAU657)


A little different, does not use USB, but rather the BSL interface. (likely as a drop in replacement for existing products)

It uses AES for encryption. but they mention the API calls are generic enough to enable changing this (for MCUs without an AES module for example)

@greeeg  I wasn't sure but thought that there might be something out there for the TI ecosystem. Thanks for the remembering, and the reference.  What I thought was interesting about the HAD post was the USB angle and the ease with which an end user could update the protected firmware.
