Any openbsd gurus?
Hello, I've been researching the geode-aes block on the new geode lx board that are becoming available. I was able to access it via the linux ocf patches, which is really round-about, as the ocf patches are based on the openbsd cryptography framework, providing access to the crypto device for the linux cryptoapi.
Openbsd has a driver for the geode-aes block, but apparently it only accesses the rng, not the security block.
This is a really awesome opportunity and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed it and is trying to gain access to it for vpns and ssl offloading.
Thanks, I'm a big fan of pfsense now that I am using 1.2!
OpenBSD support is irrelevant (pfsense is FreeBSD), have you found anything on FreeBSD?
I know pfSense is FreeBSD… but since it already exists in OpenBSD, chances are it will get ported from there onto FreeBSD, just like the padlock driver:
So, go ask the question on the relevant FreeBSD list ;)
If/when it's imported into FreeBSD the chance of getting it into pfSense improve considerably, particularly if it's imported into the version pfSense uses as it's core.
