Application: Method and system for distributing keys (Patent ID: US20240106813A1)

The patent filed by Advanced Micro Devices Inc. describes a method and system for distributing keys in a key distribution system. The method involves receiving a connection for communication from a component, determining if a key needs to be generated and distributed, and generating the key based on the security mode for the communication. The key is then distributed to the component, with options for selecting key size based on the component type and switching between security modes.

The system includes a processor and modules for communication with components, where the processor is responsible for generating and distributing keys based on the security mode. The system allows for the distribution of keys over dedicated communication buses, selection of key size based on component type, and switching between security modes. Additionally, the system can delete keys generated for components upon disconnection and includes support for various types of components like PCIe, video, display, and memory controller components. Overall, the method and system provide a secure and efficient way to distribute keys in a computer system.
