    OpenSSL is popular software library for applications that secure communications over computer networks against eavesdropping or need to identify the party at the other end. It is widely used in internet web servers, serving a majority of all web sites. OpenSSL contains an open-source implementation of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols, it is a robust, commercial-grade, and full-featured toolkit for the SSL and TLS protocols. OpenSSL  is also a general-purpose cryptography library. Its core library, written in the C programming language, implements basic cryptographic functions and provides various utility functions. Wrappers allowing the use of the OpenSSL library in a variety of computer languages are available. More and more embeded systems, like IoT gateway, ePOS, based on i.MX use OpenSSL for their secure communications and cryptographic operations. But it's  cryptography library is pure software implementation which need to occupy lots of CPU resouce and the perfermance is very weak than dedicated hardware IP (like CAAM).    CAAM is the i.MX's cryptographic acceleration and assurance module, which serves as NXP's latest cryptographic acceleration and offloading hardware. It combines functions previously implemented in separate modules to create a modular and scalable acceleration and assurance engine. It also implements block encryption algorithms, stream cipher algorithms, hashing algorithms, public key algorithms (i.MX6UL/i.MX7D/S), and a hardware random number generator.   The official Yocto release (L4.1.15_2.0.0-ga) of the i.MX only enable cryptodev for accelerating symmetric algorithms and  hashing algorithms, not support asymmetric algorithms(RSA, ECC). And its engine in OpenSSL(version 1.0.2h) also miss some features which is used to support symmetric algorithms and  hashing algorithms, for example, AES ECB, SHA224/256, etc. These patches in the post will close the above gaps for i.MX Linux system. The software environments as the belows: Linux kernel: imx_4.1.15_2.0.0_ga cryptodev: 1.8 OpenSSL: 1.0.2h The patches include the following key features: 1, Add public key cryptography part in CAAM driver, through protocol commands, to implement a number of public (and private) key functions. These are DSA and ECDSA sign/verify, Diffie-Hellman (DH) and ECDH key agreement, ECC key generation, DLC key generation, RSA encryption/decryption, RSA key-generation finalization. 2, Add big number operation and elliptic curve math in CAAM driver to implement addition, subtraction, multiplication, exponentiation, reduction, inversion, greatest common divisor,  prime testing and point add, point double, point multiply. 3, Add API in cryptodev to support RSA  encryption/decryption, DSA/ECDSA sign/verify, DH/ECDH key agreement, ECC & DLC & RSA key generation and big number  operation and e lliptic  c urve m ath. 4, Add public key cryptography functions, hardware rng, and missing hash symmetric algorithms in OpenSSL crytodev engine. Note: 1, RSA key generation in CAAM only support up to 1024 bit key, so I add software solution (only use CAAM to accelerate big number  operation and  prime testing ) for RSA keygen in crytodev engine instead of CAAM. 2, You can refer to ecdhtest.c, ecdsatest.c, dhtest.c, dsatest.c, rsa_test.c for how to use crytodev engine in your applications based on libcryto.so. You can also find their executable programs in folder openssl-1.0.2h/test after compiling. 3, If you want to call crytodev API directly to accelerate public key cryptography operations, please refer to asymmetric_cipher.c in cryptodev-linux-1.8/tests. Current Limitation: 1, CAAM driver don't support AES GCM/CCM but hardware supporting. I plan to add the feature next version. 2, ECDSA sign/verify will fail on some binary curves (sect163r1, sect163r2, sect193r1, sect193r2, sect233r1, sect283r1, sect409r1, sect571r1 and X9.62 binary curves). I will try to find the root cause and fix it. ==================================== for  some binary curves (sect163r1, sect163r2, sect193r1, sect193r2, sect233r1, sect283r1, sect409r1, sect571r1 and X9.62 binary curves)  are rarely used, so i will try to find the root cause when i'm free.

Requirements: Host machine with Ubuntu 14.04 UDOO Quad/Dual Board uSD card with at least 8 GB Download documentation and install latest Official Udoobuntu OS (at the moment of writing: UDOObuntu 2.1.2), https://www.udoo.org/downloads/   Overview: This document describes how to install and test Keras (Open source neural network library) and Theano (numerical computation library for python ) for deep learning library usage on i.MX6QD UDOO board.  Installation: $ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade update your date system: e.g. $ sudo date -s “07/08/2017 12:00” First satisfy the run-time and build time dependencies: $ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties software-properties-common make unzip zlib1g-dev git pkg-config autoconf automake libtool curl  python-pip python-numpy libblas-dev liblapack-dev python-dev libatlas-base-dev gfortran libhdf5-serial-dev libhdf5-dev python-setuptools libyaml-dev libpython2.7-dev $ sudo easy_install scipy The last step is installing scipy through   pip , and can take several hours. Theano First, we have a few more dependencies to get: $sudo pip install scikit-learn $sudo pip install pillow $sudo pip install h5py With these dependencies met, we can install a stable Theano release from the git source: $ git clone https://github.com/Theano/Theano $ cd Theano Numpy 1.9 cause conflicts with armv7, so we need to change the setup.py configuration: $ sudo nano setup.py Remove line    #       install_requires=['numpy>=1.9.1', 'scipy>=0.14', 'six>=1.9.0'], And add setup_requires=["numpy"], install_requires=["numpy"], Then install it: $ sudo python setup.py install Keras The installation can occur with the command: (this could take a lot of time!!!) $ cd .. $ git clone https://github.com/fchollet/keras.git $ cd keras $ sudo python setup.py install $ LC_ALL=C $sudo pip install --upgrade keras After Keras is installed, you will want to edit the Keras configuration file ~/.keras/keras.json to use Theano instead of the default TensorFlow backend. If it isn't there, you can create it. This requires changing two lines. The first change is: "image_dim_ordering": "tf"  --> "image_dim_ordering": "th" and the second: "backend": "tensorflow" --> "backend": "theano" (The final file should look like the example below) sudo nano ~/.keras/keras.json {     "image_dim_ordering": "th",     "epsilon": 1e-07,     "floatx": "float32",     "image_data_format": "channels_last",     "backend": "theano" } You can also define the environment variable KERAS_BACKEND and this will override what is defined in your config file : $ KERAS_BACKEND=theano python -c "from keras import backend" Testing Quick test: udooer@udoo:~$ python Python 2.7.6 (default, Oct 26 2016, 20:46:32) [GCC 4.8.4] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import keras Using Theano backend. >>>  Test 2: Be aware this test take some time (~1hr on udoo dual): $ curl -sSL -k https://github.com/fchollet/keras/raw/master/examples/mnist_mlp.py | python Output: For demonstration, deep-learning-models repository provided by pyimagesearch and from fchollet git, and also have three Keras models (VGG16, VGG19, and ResNet50) online — these networks are  pre-trained  on the ImageNet dataset , meaning that they can recognize  1,000 common object classes out-of-the-box. $ cd keras $ git clone https://github.com/fchollet/deep-learning-models $ Cd deep-learning-models $ ls -l Notice how we have four Python files. The  resnet50 . py  ,  vgg16 . py  , and  vgg19 . py   files correspond to their respective network architecture definitions. The  imagenet_utils   file, as the name suggests, contains a couple helper functions that allow us to prepare images for classification as well as obtain the final class label predictions from the network Classify ImageNet classes with ResNet50 ResNet50 model, with weights pre-trained on ImageNet. This model is available for both the Theano and TensorFlow backend, and can be built both with "channels_first" data format (channels, height, width) or "channels_last" data format (height, width, channels). The default input size for this model is 224x224. We are now ready to write some Python code to classify image contents utilizing  convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) pre-trained on the ImageNet dataset. For udoo Quad/Dual use ResNet50 due to avoid space conflict. Also we are going to use ImageNet ( http://image-net.org/ ) that is an image database organized according to the  WordNet hierarchy, in which each node of the hierarchy is depicted by hundreds and thousands of images. from keras.applications.resnet50 import ResNet50 from keras.preprocessing import image from keras.applications.resnet50 import preprocess_input, decode_predictions import numpy as np   model = ResNet50(weights='imagenet')   #for this sample I download the image from: http://i.imgur.com/wpxMwsR.jpg   img_path = 'elephant.jpg' img = image.load_img(img_path, target_size=(224, 224)) x = image.img_to_array(img) x = np.expand_dims(x, axis=0) x = preprocess_input(x)   preds = model.predict(x) # decode the results into a list of tuples (class, description, probability) # (one such list for each sample in the batch) print('Predicted:', decode_predictions(preds, top=3)[0]) Save the file an run it. Results for elephant image: Top prediction was 0.8890 for African Elephant Testing with this image: http://i.imgur.com/4FIOwAN.jpg Results: Top prediction was: 0.7799 for golden_retriever. Now your Udoo is ready to use Keras and Theano as Deep Learning libraries, next time we are going to show some usage example for image classification models with OpenCV.

MIPI can support video streaming over 1, 2, 3 and 4 lanes. On i.MX6 Sabre boards, the OV5640 camera supports 1 or 2 lanes and the NXP Linux Kernel uses 2 lanes as default. In order to use only one lane, follow the steps below: 1 - Change the board Device Tree on Linux Kernel. On file <linux kernel folder>/arch/arm/boot/dts/imx6qdl-sabresd.dtsi, find the entry "&mipi_csi" and change lanes from 2 to 1. 2 - Configure OV5640 to use only one lane instead of two. On file <linux kernel folder>/drivers/media/platform/mxc/capture/ov5640_mipi.c, change the register 0x300e value from 0x45 to 0x05. This register setup is located at struct ov5640_init_setting_30fps_VGA. 3 - Build the kernel and device tree files. 4 - Test the camera. Unit test can be used to test the video capture: /unit_tests/mxc_v4l2_overlay.out -di /dev/video1 -ow 1024 -oh 768 -m 1 5 - Checking if it's really using one lane. MIPI_CSI_PHY_STATE resgister (address 0x021D_C014) provides the status of all data and clock lanes. During video streaming using 2 lanes, the register value constantly changes its value between 0x0000_0300 and 0x0000_0330. When using only one lane, this register value constantly changes its value between 0x0000_0300 and 0x0000_0310. To read the register value during the stream, run the video test with &: /unit_tests/mxc_v4l2_overlay.out -di /dev/video1 -ow 1024 -oh 768 -m 1 & Now, run the memtool: /unit_tests/memtool -32 0x021dc014 1 i.MX6DL running mxc_v4l2_overlay.out with only one lane:

The patches are based on iMX6 L3.10.53 and 3.14.52 GA BSP.   In default linux BSP, the followed two pathes were supported in kernel driver mxc_v4l2_capture.c: CSI->IC->MEM CSI->MEM   After appied these patches, it can support the followed path: CSI->VDI->IC->MEM CSI->VDI->MEM In this mode, the VDI de-interlace will be handled on the fly, so the whole system bandwidth will be reduced.   Limitations: 1. Since the IC can only output resolution up to 1024*1024, so this is the limation on output. 2. Only VDI motion mode 2 was supported.   mxc_v4l2_tvin.zip: It is the test aplication, test command for CSI->VDI->IC->MEM ("-i 2" means CSI->VDI->IC->MEM path.): ./mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 0 -ot 0 -ow 800 -oh 480 -i 2 -g2d"   test command for CSI->VDI->MEM ("-i 3" means CSI->VDI->MEM path.): ./mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 0 -ot 0 -ow 800 -oh 480 -i 3 -g2d"

Some Chinese customers using i.MX series SoC maybe encounter some issues when they download android , u-boot & kernel source code by 'git' command, the following steps will show customer how to get them: 1. Getting repo --No.1 methord # cd ~ # mkdir myandroid # mkdir bin # cd bin # git clone git://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/git-repo.git/ <if git failed, use : git clone https://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/git-repo.git/ > # cd git-repo # cp ./repo ../ --No.2 methord # cd ~ # mkdir bin # curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo # chmod a+x ~/bin/repo [Note]Customers can select one of above to get "repo" 2. Modifying repo File Open ~/bin/repo file with 'gedit' and Change google address From        REPO_URL = ' https://gerrit.googlesource.com/git-repo ' To        REPO_URL = 'git://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/git-repo'        like following: ## repo default configuration ## REPO_URL = 'git://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/git-repo' REPO_REV = 'stable' 3 、 Setting email address # cd ~/myandroid # git config --global user.email " weidong.sun@nxp.com " # git config --global user.name "weidong.sun" [ Email & Name should be yours] 4 、 Getting manifest # ~/bin/repo init -u https://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/platform/manifest -b android-5.1.1_r1 # cd ~/myandroid/.repo # gedit manifest.xml        Then change the value of fetch to " git://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/ ", like following: <manifest>   <remote name="aosp"            fetch="git://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/" />   <default revision="refs/tags/android-5.1.1_r1" ...... [Note] android-5.1.1_r1 is version of branch,customer can change it to another. 5 、 # ~/bin/repo sync          [Note] During runing repo sync, maybe errors will occur like the following: ...... * [new tag]         studio-1.4 -> studio-1.4 error: Exited sync due to fetch errors          Then 'repo sync' exits. But don't worry about it, continue to run the command please ! " ~/bin/repo sync", downloading source code will be continous. 6 、 Getting Cross Compiler # cd ~/myandroid/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm # git clone https://aosp.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/android/platform/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.6 # cd arm-eabi-4.6 # git checkout android-4.4.3_r1 7 、 Getting linux kernel source code        Probably, customer can't normally get linux kernel by using "git clone" command, she can download it directly from the following weblink:        http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/linux-2.6-imx.git/        At first, create a temperary directory, then download kernel into the directory. see following steps: # cd ~ /Downloads # mkdir linux-kernel   Atfer downloading l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga.tar.gz, use 'tar zxvf l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga.tar.gz' command to decompress it.        Then you can find a subdirectory name " l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga" is created, linux source code is in the directory, we should copy all files in the directory to ~/myandroid/kernel_imx/ # cd ~/myandroid # mkdir kernel_imx # cd kernel_imx # cp -a ~ /Downloads/linux-kernel/l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga ./ 8 、 Getting uboot source code               Probably, customer can't normally get linux kernel by using "git clone" command, she can download it directly from the following weblink:       http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/uboot-imx.git/        We can use similar way to that of linux kernel to get u-boot source code: # cd ~ /Downloads # mkdir u-boot        Download l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga.tar.gz file, and save it in ~ /Downloads/ u-boot, then decompress it, then u-boot source code will be in ~ /Downloads/ u-boot / l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga/, we should copy all file in the path to ~/myandroid/bootable/bootloader/uboot-imx/ # cd ~/myandroid/bootable/bootloader # mkdir uboot-imx # cd uboot-imx # cp -a ~ /Downloads/u-boot/ l5.1.1_2.1.0-ga/ * ./ 9 、 Patch android BSP source code        android_L5.1.1_2.1.0_consolidated-ga_core_source.gz is the name of patch.

For iMX6DQ, there are two IPUs, so they can support up to 4 cameras at the same time. But the default BSP can only support up to two cameras at the same time. The attached patch can make the BSP support up to 4 cameras based on 3.10.53 GA 1.1.0 BSP.   The 4 cameras can be: - 1xCSI, 3xMIPI - 2xCSI, 2xMIPI - 4xMIPI   For 4xMIPI case, the four cameras should be combined on the single MIPI CSI2 interface, and each camera data should be transfered on a mipi virtual channel.   In this patch, we given the example driver for Maxim MAX9286, it was verified working on iMX6DQ SabreAuto board. The input to MAX9286 is four 720P30 cameras. The verified camera boards:     (1) Onsemi AR0140+AP0101+MAX9271 boards.     (2) OmniVision OV10635+MAX9271 boards.   The MIPI CSI2 CVBS camera surround view solution can be found at: iMX6DQ ISL79985/79987 MIPI CSI2 CVBS camera surround view solution for Linux BSP The MIPI CSI2 CVBS HD camera surround view solution can be found at: iMX6DQ TP2854 MIPI CSI2 720P CVBS camera surround view solution for Linux BSP   The kernel patches: 0001-IPU-update-IPU-capture-driver-to-support-up-to-four-.patch      Updated IPU common code to support up to four cameras.   0002-Add-Max9286-support-on-SabreAuto-board-which-can-sup.patch      MAX9286 driver, it includes MAX9271, AP0101 and AR0140 drivers.   0003-Remove-the-page-size-align-requirement-for-v4l2-capt.patch      With this patch, the mxc_v4l2_tvin test application can use overlay framebuffer as V4l2 capture buffer directly.   0004-Max9286-skip-AP0101-camera-re-initialization.patch      If the camera board's power had been kept after initialized, this patch will bypass the re-initialization to reduce the start up time.   0005-Max9286-set-I2C-speed-to-400Kbps.patch     Set I2C to 400Kbps to reduce the AP0101+AR0140 initialization time.   0006-Max9286-add-retry-for-MAX9271-I2C-access.patch     Added retry for MAX9271 I2C access.   0007-Max9286-Add-support-for-OV10635-camera.patch     Updated code for OV10635 camera.   0008-Max9286-support-auto-detect-camera-number.patch     Make the Max9286 driver can detect the camera number automatically.     How to builld the kernel with MAX9286 support:       make imx_v7_defconfig       make menuconfig (In this command, you should select the MAX9286 driver:             Device Drivers  --->                   <*> Multimedia support  --->                         [*]   V4L platform devices  --->                               <*>   MXC Video For Linux Video Capture                                       MXC Camera/V4L2 PRP Features support  --->                                           <*>Maxim max9286 GMSL Deserializer Input support                                               Select Camera Sensor (OmniVision OV10635 camera sensor)  // Or (Onsemi AP0101 and AR0140 camera sensor)                                           <*>mxc VADC support                                           <*>Select Overlay Rounting (Queue ipu device for overlay library)                                           <*>Pre-processor Encoder library                                           <*>IPU CSI Encoder library)       make zImage       make dtbs   The built out image file:       arch/arm/boot/dts/imx6q-sabreauto.dtb       arch/arm/boot/zImage   "mxc_v4l2_tvin_max9286.tar.gz" is the test application, test command to capture the four cameras and render on 1080P HDMI display: /mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 0 -ot 0 -ow 960 -oh 540 -d 1 -x 0 -g2d & /mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 960 -ot 0 -ow 960 -oh 540 -d 1 -x 1 -g2d & /mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 0 -ot 540 -ow 960 -oh 540 -d 1 -x 2 -g2d & /mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 960 -ot 540 -ow 960 -oh 540 -d 1 -x 3 -g2d &   Some hardware check point on AR0140+AP0101+MAX9271 camera board (Please get MAX9286 and OV10635 schematics from Maxim): 1. In this patch, MAX9286's I2C address is 0x4D, so ADD0 and ADD1 should be connected to high. AP0101's I2C address is 0xBA, so SADDR should be connected to high.   2. AP0101's DOUT0~DOUT7 should be connected to MAX9271's DIN7~DIN0, the order should be switched, MSB connected to LSB.   3. MAX9271's GPO pin should be connected to AP0101's FRAME_SYNC pin. The pull down resistance on FRAME_SYNC pin should not be 0 ohm.   Some known limitation: 1. AP0101's VSYNC invalid time, last video line's HSYNC to VSYNC porch's max value is 255 pixel clocks, it is not enough for MAX9286 to generate the Frame End MIPI packets for each camera. So in order to let iMX6DQ to capture 1280x720 video for each camera, we had let AP0101 output 1280*724 frame size, and iMX6 will only capture 720 lines, the remained video data and Frame End will be ignored. This solution will not impact the function, but there will be " Error matching Frame Start with Frame End for Virtual Channel x " error reported from iMX6 MIPI_CSI_ERR1 register. Maxim suggested to use MAX96705 to relace the MAX9271, it can delay the VSYNC invalid time, then the MIPI error will be fixed.     2015-11-17 update: Updated for OV10635 camera support.

It is based on L3.0.35_GA4.1.0 BSP.   In default Linux BSP, there are 3 kinds of de-interlace mode, motion =0,1,2 mode, motion mode 0 and 1 will use three fields for de-interlace, and motion mode 2 wil use one field for de-interlace, so the whole fps is 30. In this mode, for motion mode 0 and 1, field 1,2,3 was used for first VDI output frame of display; and field 3,4,5 was used for second VDI output frame of display; field 5,6,7 was used for third VDI output frame of display. One field data (such as 2,4,6) was used only once, so there is data lost.   After applied these patches, the VDI de-interlace output will be 60fps: for motion mode 0 and 1, field 0,1,2 was used for first VDI output frame of display; and field 1,2,3 was used for second VDI output frame of display; field 2,3,4 was used for third VDI output frame of display. So all field data will be used twice, there is no video data lost, the VDI quality was improved.   Kernel patches: 0001-Add-MEM-to-VDI-to-MEM-support-for-IPU.patch 0002-Add-IPU-IC-memcpy-support.patch 0003-IPU-VDI-support-switch-odd-and-even-field-in-motion-.patch 0004-IPU-VDI-correct-vdi-top-field-setting.patch   mxc_v4l2_tvin_imx6_vdi_60fps.zip: this is the test application sample code.   Test commands, parameter "-vd" means double fps VDI: ./mxc_v4l2_tvin.out -ol 0 -ot 0 -ow 720 -oh 480 -m 0 -vd
