This Design Advisory is targeted at users who encrypt their configuration files during Secure Boot, and impacts Bootgen, FSBL, XILSECURE and XILFPGA.
In versions prior to 2018.1, Xilinx Development tools and software re-use the same AES Key and IV pair across multiple partitions.
This re-use violates the NIST 800-38D standard which states the following:
"The probability that the authenticated encryption function ever will be invoked with the same IV and the same key on two (or more) distinct sets of input data shall be no greater than 2 ^ -32."
This issue is resolved in the 2018.1 release.
Please, reference (UG1137) (v7.0) May 4, 2018 Chapter 8 "Security Features" for more details.
