Writing Drivers for the Linux Crypto Subsystem - Marek Vasut, DENX Software Engineering

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Security is one of the highlights of the Linux kernel and the Linux Crypto subsystem is one of the key components of this. The Linux Crypto subsystem is the middleman between the cryptographic hardware and the consumers of it's services throughout the Linux kernel. It is therefore utterly important for this layer to work correctly under all circumstances.

There are a few implementation details to the Crypto subsystem which can be rather confusing. In this talk, Marek will explain in detail how to write a driver for cryptographic hardware and make it play well with the Linux Crypto subsystem. He will point out the possible pitfalls and explain how to avoid those. In the end, Marek will outline which options are there for testing the new driver, both on the kernel side and the userland side.
