Currently No. In what kind of situation do you want to use Lockbox in uclinux?

If no, then how can I do for it? Is there any other  solution for IP protection.

 

I want to protect my product design and protect the software application from mass copy.

 

Thanks for your attention,YI

Please track changes here https://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/uclinux-dist/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=4935

 

As it says, this is planned for 2009R2 or 2010 release. This feature only avoid invalid copy from flash, but not reliable if a senior hacker has a hardware DRAM emulator.

Everytime we have talked to people about LockBox + Linux - everyone comes to the conclusion Lockbox was not the solution they wanted.

 

What are you trying to protect? (userspace code?) and how do you think it might work within a OS framework?

Robin,

 

In my case, not only userapce code, but also some drivers(as loadable modules) need protection.And I want to use the CPU-ID to protect mass copy. So the modules and applications should be encrypted , and before they can execute, they should be decrypted. Is this process differ with lockbox?

 

If lockbox can't meet this needs, maybe need some change?

 

Then, what's the plan of the task 4935? Don't it protect the userspace code?why not?

 

Thanks very much,Robin

Lockbox was never architected to protect anything that could not 100% fit into internal memory. That is pretty difficult to do with anything in the Linux kernel.

 

Task 4935 is find someone (maybe you) who understands what Lockbox can/can't do - and implment something that will work.

 

I can always break your code which exists in external memory. It just depends on how hard you want to make it for me. It will never be impossible - anyone who tells you different is selling snake oil.
