SafeNet crypto accelerator
safe* at pci?
safe driver supports cards containing
any of the following chips:
- SafeNet 1141
- The original chipset. Supports DES, Triple-DES, AES, MD5, and SHA-1 symmetric crypto operations, RNG, public key operations, and full IPsec packet processing.
- SafeNet 1741
- A faster version of the 1141.
safe driver registers itself to
accelerate Triple-DES, AES, MD5-HMAC, and SHA1-HMAC operations for
Additionally, the driver provides input to the random(4) subsystem.
- safe0: Reduce max DMA size to N words for rev X.Y
- The 1.0 silicon has major pci(4) bugs and may lock the bus completely. There is no easy workaround.
crypt(3), intro(4), ipsec(4), pci(4), random(4), crypto(9)
Early silicon revisions can wedge the PCI bus.
