Send RPMB commands to an NVMe device

Synopsis

nvme rpmb <device> [--cmd=<command> | -c <command>]
                    [--msgfile=<data-file> | -f <data-file>]
                    [--keyfile=<key-file> | -g <key-file>]
                    [--key=<key> | -k <key>]
                    [--msg=<data> | -d <data>]
                    [--address=<offset> | -o <offset>]
                    [--blocks=<512 byte sectors> | -b <sectors> ]
                    [--target=<target-id> | -t <id> ]

Description

For the NVMe device given, send an nvme rpmb command and provide the results.

The <device> parameter is mandatory and NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0) must be specified. If the given device supports RPMB targets, command given with --cmd or -c option shall be sent to the controller. If given NVMe device doesn’t support RPMB targets, a message indicating the same shall be printed along with controller register values related RPMB.

Options

-c <command>, --cmd=<command>

RPMB command to be sent to the device. It can be one of the following

info          - print information regarding supported RPMB targets and
                access and total sizes. No further arguments are required
program-key   - program 'key' specified with -k option or key read from
                file specified with --keyfile option to the specified
                RPMB target given with --target or -t options. As per
                spec, this is one time action which can't be undone.
read-counter  - Read 'write counter' of specified RPMB target. The
                counter value read is printed onto STDOUT
read-config   - Read 512 bytes of device configuration block data of
                specified RPMB target of the NVMe device. The data read
                is written to input file specified with --msgfile or -f
                option.
write-config  - Write 512 byes of device configuration block data
                from file specified by --msgfile or -f options to the
                RPMB target specified with --target or -t options.
read-data     - Supports authenticated data reading from specified
                RPMB target (--target or -t option) at given offset
                specified with --address or -o option, using key
                specified using --keyfile or -k options. --blocks or
                -o option should be given to read the amount of data
                to be read in 512 byte blocks.
write-data    - Supports authenticated data writing to specified RPMB
                target (--target or -t option) at given offset
                specified with --address or -o option, using key
                specified using --keyfile or -k options. --blocks or
                -o option should be given to indicate amount of data
                to be written in 512 byte blocks.
For data transfer (read/write) commands, if the specified size is not
within the total size supported by a target, the request is failed
nvme-rpmb without sending it to device. RPMB target 0 is used as the
default target if --target or -t is not specified. 0x0 is used as the
default address if no -address or -o option is specified,
-t <target>, --target=<target>

RPMB target id. This should be one of the supported RPMB targets as reported by info command. If nothing is given, default of 0 is used as RPMB target.

-k <key>, --key=<key>, -g <key-file>, --keyfile=<key-file>

Authentication key to be used for read/write commands. This should have been already programmed by program-key command for given target. Key can be specified on command line using --key or -k options. Key can also be specified using file argument specified with --keyfile or -g options.

-f <data-file>, --msgfile=<data-file>

Name of the file to be used for data transfer commands (read or write). For read command, if an existing file is specified, it will be appended.

-d <data>, --msg=<data>

These options provide the data on the command line itself.

-o <offset>, --address=<offset>

The address (in 512 byte sector offset from 0) to be used for data transfer commands (read or write) for a specified RPMB target.

-b,  --blocks=<sectors>

The size in 512 byte sectors to be used for data transfer commands (read or write) for a specified RPMB target.
