Hello,

 

I would like to have a public key to encrypt my IP as described here: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ug/ug_intro_to_megafunctions.pdf

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

Are you using the Intel Quartus Prime software to encrypt the file or third party software?

 

Thanks

I would like to encrypt a design in order to deliver it to a third party without releaving the sources.

Indeed I heard that there was a Quartus executable to perform the encryption, but first step is obtaining the public key isn't it?

 

Best regards,

Hi, If you are using the Intel Quartus Prime software to perform the encryption, public key is not required. If you are using a third party tool to perform encryption for files that will be compiled in the Intel Quartus Prime software, you will need a public key. Please confirm the tools used to encrypt the source file. Thanks.

Hi,

 

OK, so I will use the Quartus Prime Software, however I could not find guide or application notes explaining how to do it.

With the encrypted IP, the third party will still be able to perform simulation ?

 

Best regards.

Hi,

You may check the usage using encrypt_1735 --help

For simulation, use the --simulation option

 

Thanks.
