OCF-Linux - Asynchronous Crypto Acceleration for Linux
Currently the OCF-linux framework is running on i386, x86_64, SuperH,
Power PC and ARM
platforms (little endian and big endian). There are multiple crypto drivers
at this point in time. Each driver has been tested on as many hardware
platforms as possible. The tested and supported crypto hardware at this
- Freescale SEC
The Talitos driver uses Freescale's SEC for hardware acceleration.
- PA Semi
PA Semi PWRficient DMA Crypto Engine.
- Intel EP80579
Driver for the Intel QuickAssist enabled EP80579 Integrated Processor
By using the existing Linux cryptoapi, the cryptodev software driver
provides a fallback mechanism when hardare support is not available.
It also allows performance gains on SMP systems and can even help on
systems with a small cache or memory (all the common crypto code is
in one place, and thus smaller and more cache friendly).
