VIA Padlock & OpenSolaris Crypto Framework
By Darren Moffat-Oracle on Feb 05, 2007
An inital prototype of a driver for the VIA Padlock has just been pushed into the OpenSolaris crypto framework. At this time it only supports SHA-1 and SHA-256. The plan is to get support for AES, RSA and random number. Ultimately this driver should appear in the main ON consolidation of OpenSolaris and be available on all distributions including future Sun releases of Solaris.
Many thanks to Derek Morr for sharing his work on this via OpenSolaris.
