Platform Equivalency of Intel Xeon D-15XX and D-21XX



I am new to this forum and new to hardware analysis topics. I am a PKI consultant working on a project which involves performing platform equivalency between Intel Xeon D-15XX and Xeon D-21XX.

Based on my research, Xeon D-21XX uses skydale microarchitecture whereas D-15XX uses Broadwell and 21-XX is a successor of D-15XX, so more robust, efficient than the former. But they use the same instruction sets and no difference in the OS/applications binaries required. I am looking for a more in-depth but easy explanation to conclude that there is no difference in the way both the CPUs handle security functionalities of the OS and any third-party applications installed on the hardware.
