COEsec: AES-GCM Secure Communication link between CPU and FPGA

Configuration-over-Ethernet (COE) is a Layer 2 configuration protocol design by SoC-e to access remotely to FPGAs that implements SoC-e switching infrastructures. COE uses one of the Ethernet data lines of the switch and the typical use of COE is accessing the internal registers of the IPs for configuration and status reports purposes.

In order to enable the use of this protocol in non-secure channels, SoC-e has relased a COE secure implementation named Configuration-over-Ethernet Secure (COEsec). COEsec has the same key benefits of the standard implementation, like CPU-less operation and small layout, but it ensures the security in the access to the remote device through encryption and authentication.
