OpenVPN and AES-NI?
In reading through the pfSense I noticed that references to AES-NI are related to IPSec. Does OpenVPN use it? If not, will future versions of pfSense, that require AES-NI, not work, even if IPSec is not used?

OpenVPN will automatically use it if it's available.
Or to be more correct, OpenSSL.
OpenSSL has built-in code to talk to acceleration device.
It looks like I'll have to get some new hardware, when it becomes mandatory. My current system has an AMD CPU, without AES-NI.

The secret was known - see official source like the Netgate's blog - for long time 2.5.0 would be needing AES hardware.
Or, that has been cancelled - see here.
Bets are open for 3.0 ....
@Gertjan said in OpenVPN and AES-NI?:

Judging from those comments, I'd say postponed.
