1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Openssl with hardware encryption on: March 08, 2010, 10:01:32 AM
I've recently got a sheevaplug from newit in UK and I can't use the hardware crypto acceleration
From what I've read in various threads I must use the original kernel from Marvell for SSL since the
recent CESA support in kernels >= 2.6.32 is not yet handled by openssl

# uname -a
Linux plug 2.6.22.18 #1 Thu Mar 19 14:46:22 IST 2009 armv5tejl GNU/Linux

So this seems to be to original kernel but when I do cat /proc/crypto all the drivers are
the generic software implementation:
name         : aes
driver       : aes-generic
module       : kernel
priority     : 100
refcnt       : 1
type         : cipher
blocksize    : 16
min keysize  : 16
max keysize  : 32

Can someone tell me which kernel and which openssl I need to use to have a working configuration
which uses the hardware engine for SSL.

Thanks.
