2015.3 Vivado Device Programmer - UltraScale - Direct configuration of RSA Authenticated bitstreams not supported


Direct RSA bitstream configuration via JTAG is not supported in the 2015.3 version of Vivado Device Programmer.  

You will receive the following errors if you try to configure a bitstream with the RSA Authentication enabled:

ERROR: [Labtools 27-3236] Direct configuration with an RSA key is currently unsupported.

ERROR: [Labtools 27-3165] End of startup status: LOW

ERROR: [Labtools 17-39] 'program_hw_devices' failed due to earlier errors.


To work around this issue, use other programming interfaces such as SPI/BPI flash or SMAP to configure these encrypted bitstreams.
