Utilizing the Crypto Accelerators - Marek Vasut, DENX Software Engineering

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

The Linux kernel officially allows userland to make use of it's cryptographic acceleration facilities for more than three years now. In this talk, Marek will explain what are the options for accessing the cryptographic facilities from userland and how to use those facilities.

Marek will focus specifically on AF_ALG as the official, supported, in-kernel method and on the Cryptodev solution. Both of the solutions are widely used so he will look at pros and cons of both. He will then focus on a regular developer, how he can write userland code to leverage the power of the cryptographic hardware via either of the interfaces.
