An Overview of the Linux Kernel Crypto Subsystem - Boris Brezillon, Free Electrons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Linux kernel has long provided cryptographic support for in-kernel users (like the network or storage stacks) and has been pushed to open these cryptographic capabities to user-space along the way.

But what is exactly inside this subsystem, and how can it be used by kernel users? What is the official userspace interface exposing these features and what are non-upstream alternatives? When should we use a HW engine compared to a purely software based implementation? What's inside a crypto engine driver and what precautions should be taken when developing one?

These are some of the questions we'll answer throughout this talk, after having given a short introduction to cryptographic algorithms.
