Topic: BCM47xx and 53xx crypto hardware (IPSec,AES,SHA...) support
Does anybody know what is the status of hardware acceleration supported by kernel/drivers for the Broadcom BCM47xx/BCM53xx SoCs?
The BCM4702 and BCM5365 used by some of the platforms (Asus WL500GD/X, Netgear WGT634U...) have such hardware accelerated encryption support for IPSec, AES, DES, SHA... calculations.
The specification states the hardware is able to support 75Mbps of encrypted throughput....
Does the acctual brcmXXXX kernel patches and/or additional drivers acctually supports that on OpenWrt? Are there any ported "native crypto libraries" for this chips? Anything known about that?
Are there any performance test (ipsec... crypto in genereal) for these devices (asus 500gd, wgt 634u...)
Thanks for any information.
