Hello,

Once the lifecycle stage is set to SECURE, is it possible to go from a DAP lock state to a DAP unlock state using the EFUSE_DATA_SECURE_ACCESS_RESTRICT0 register?

If not, is there any way to unlock the DAP once it has been locked in any given lifecycle stage?

Thank you,

Xavier

Hello Xavier,

Answers inline.

When in Secure w/ Debug Lifecycle mode, will the DAP access be enabled even if the EFUSE_DATA_SECURE_ACCESS_RESTRICT0 register is set to disable the DAP access?

Yes, that's right. In Secure w/ Debug mode, the normal access restrictions will apply. EFUSE_DATA_SECURE_ACCESS_RESTRICT0 will only come into effect if you transition to Secure mode from Normal mode. It does not have a role to play in Secure w/ Debug mode.

Is it possible to lock/unlock the DAP in Normal Lifecycle mode? If so, could you advise on the procedure to follow?

Yes, it is. Please refer to the following thread: Is it possible to prevent user to trace through SWD/JTAG?

Hello Xavier,

No, this is not possible. Blowing the EFuse is an irreversible process. So, based on the EFUSE_DATA_SECURE_ACCESS_RESTRICT0 register setting, it is going to blow the EFuses accordingly when the lifecycle is changed to SECURE and you can't go back to a lower protection setting.

Hence, during development, it is recommended to test your designs using NORMAL and Secure w/ Debug Lifecycle modes. Secure w/ Debug allows DAP access.

For more information refer:

Hope this answers your query

Hi Dheeraj,

Thank you for your reply!

First follow-up question:

When in Secure w/ Debug Lifecycle mode, will the DAP access be enabled even if the EFUSE_DATA_SECURE_ACCESS_RESTRICT0 register is set to disable the DAP access?

Second follow-up question:

Is it possible to lock/unlock the DAP in Normal Lifecycle mode? If so, could you advise on the procedure to follow?

From the DAP Security section of the PSoC 6 programming manual: "The second bit, CPUSS_DP_CTL.xxx_DISABLE, can be set during boot, before the debugger can connect, based on eFuse settings for SECURE or DEAD life-cycle stage or based on NAR settings in Supervisory flash for NORMAL life-cycle."

Thank you very much,

Xavier
