Host Authentication Module

Fig. 8 Host Authentication Module


This module is not really specified yet.

The system can require the host to authenticate before connecting to the debug system, because the debug can expose confidential information. A HAM implementation can for example require a token to match or a sophisticated challenge-response protocol. If configured the HIM will wait for the HAM to allow the host to communicate with modules other than the HAM.
