Security and cryptodev module

Hi,

   I am using Linux 4.14.62 Kernel and Yocto version sumo 2.5 . I am referring to the Linux user's guide version Rev. L4.14.62_1.0.0_beta. I was able to try out the openssl command to check the cryptographic algorithm speed without cryptodev . I tried to enable few modules in kernel but could not find which exactly generates the cryptodev.ko file.

Whether the cryptodev is part of kernel ? Or I have to download the cryptodev source code separately. I tried in this way, but cross-compilng was throwing error.

Any help?

Hello,

   Please use section 8.1.6 (Driver Configuration) of "i.MX_Reference_Manual.pdf"

in the BSP documentation package.


Have a great day,
Yuri

Hi Yurin,

   Thank You for the reply.

   I followed the Driver configuration section on the Reference manual document and enabled the macros as mentioned but the cryptodev.ko file is still not built.

When I follow the step

modprobe cryptodev

I am getting  "modprobe: FATAL: Module cryptodev not found in directory /lib/modules/4.14.62"

Thanks & Regards,

Anjali
