NAME

cryptohardware crypto access driver

SYNOPSIS

pseudo-device crypto [count]

DESCRIPTION

The crypto driver provides userland applications access to hardware crypto support via the kernel. The /dev/crypto device node primarily operates in an ioctl(2) based model, permitting a variety of applications to query device capabilities, submit transactions, and get results.
If count is given in the specification, and is greater than 0, a maximum of one crypto device is created.
The following ioctl(2) calls apply only to the crypto devices:
 
 
CIOCGSESSION
Set up a new crypto session for a new type of operation.
 
 
CIOCFSESSION
Free a previously established session.
 
 
CIOCCRYPT
Perform a crypto operation against a previously set up session.

FEATURES

Depending on hardware being present, the following symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic features are potentially available from /dev/crypto:
CRYPTO_DES_CBC
 
CRYPTO_3DES_CBC
 
CRYPTO_BLF_CBC
 
CRYPTO_CAST_CBC
