test_vectors_pkg.sv

This class read a list of vector files and parse the useful information to uvm_sequences. The following is a list of common properties and methods:

  • _file_list: A string list of file names grouped by tested functionality.
  • test_vectors_t: A structure of parsed information.
  • str_to_bytes: A method to parse string to a vector of bytes.
  • get_test_vectors_path: A method to get file directory from the run option, and concatenate with input file name. Return the full file path.
  • open_file: A method to open a file with specific path, and return a open file handle.
  • parse_sha: A method to parse SHA vectors files. Return an array of test_vectors_t.

SHA256 vectors

The test vector files inside of vectors/sha/sha256/ are downloaded from the NIST website.

SHA3 vectors

Test vector files for the 224, 256, 384, and 512 bit variants of SHA3 found at vectors/sha/sha3-<224/256/384/512> are downloaded from the NIST website.

HMAC vectors

Files inside of vectors/hmac/ contain test vectors extracted from IETF RFC 4868.

SHAKE vectors

Test vector files for the SHA3 Extendable Output Functions in vectors/xof/shake are downloaded from the NIST website.

cSHAKE vectors

Test vectors for the Customizable SHAKE functions are taken from the NIST website. These vectors are found in vectors/xof/cshake/.

KMAC vectors

Test vectors for KMAC algorithm are taken from NIST website for both the XOF and non-XOF variants. These vectors are found in vectors/xof/kmac/.

AES vectors

Test vectors for AES can be found under hw/ip/aes/dv/test_vectors Test vectors for AES algorithm are taken from the NIST website
