2007-02-07[CRYPTO] api: Add type-safe spawnsHerbert Xu
This patch allows spawns of specific types (e.g., cipher) to be allocated. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2006-09-21[CRYPTO] digest: Added user API for new hash typeHerbert Xu
The existing digest user interface is inadequate for support asynchronous operations. For one it doesn't return a value to indicate success or failure, nor does it take a per-operation descriptor which is essential for the issuing of requests while other requests are still outstanding. This patch is the first in a series of steps to remodel the interface for asynchronous operations. For the ease of transition the new interface will be known as "hash" while the old one will remain as "digest". This patch also changes sg_next to allow chaining.

2006-09-21[CRYPTO] cipher: Added block ciphers for CBC/ECBHerbert Xu
This patch adds two block cipher algorithms, CBC and ECB. These are implemented as templates on top of existing single-block cipher algorithms. They invoke the single-block cipher through the new encrypt_one/decrypt_one interface. This also optimises the in-place encryption and decryption to remove the cost of an IV copy each round.

2006-09-21[CRYPTO] cipher: Added block cipher typeHerbert Xu
This patch adds the new type of block ciphers. Unlike current cipher algorithms which operate on a single block at a time, block ciphers operate on an arbitrarily long linear area of data. As it is block-based, it will skip any data remaining at the end which cannot form a block. The block cipher has one major difference when compared to the existing block cipher implementation. The sg walking is now performed by the algorithm rather than the cipher mid-layer. This is needed for drivers that directly support sg lists. It also improves performance for all algorithms as it reduces the total number of indirect calls by one. In future the existing cipher algorithm will be converted to only have a single-block interface. This will be done after all existing users have switched over to the new block cipher type.

2006-09-21[CRYPTO] scatterwalk: Prepare for block ciphersHerbert Xu
This patch prepares the scatterwalk code for use by the new block cipher type. Firstly it halves the size of scatter_walk on 32-bit platforms. This is important as we allocate at least two of these objects on the stack for each block cipher operation. It also exports the symbols since the block cipher code can be built as a module. Finally there is a hack in scatterwalk_unmap that relies on progress being made. Unfortunately, for hardware crypto we can't guarantee progress to be made since the hardware can fail. So this also gets rid of the hack by not advancing the address returned by scatterwalk_map. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2006-09-21[CRYPTO] cipher: Added encrypt_one/decrypt_oneHerbert Xu
This patch adds two new operations for the simple cipher that encrypts or decrypts a single block at a time. This will be the main interface after the existing block operations have moved over to the new block ciphers. It also adds the crypto_cipher type which is currently only used on the new operations but will be extended to setkey as well once existing users have been converted to use block ciphers where applicable.

2006-09-21[CRYPTO] api: Added crypto_type supportHerbert Xu
This patch adds the crypto_type structure which will be used for all new crypto algorithm types, beginning with block ciphers. The primary purpose of this abstraction is to allow different crypto_type objects for crypto algorithms of the same type, in particular, there will be a different crypto_type objects for asynchronous algorithms.

2006-09-21[CRYPTO] api: Add common instance initialisation codeHerbert Xu
This patch adds the helpers crypto_get_attr_alg and crypto_alloc_instance which can be used by simple one-argument templates like hmac to process input parameters and allocate instances. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2006-09-21[CRYPTO] api: Added spawnsHerbert Xu
Spawns lock a specific crypto algorithm in place. They can then be used with crypto_spawn_tfm to allocate a tfm for that algorithm. When the base algorithm of a spawn is deregistered, all its spawns will be automatically removed. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2006-09-21[CRYPTO] api: Add template registrationHerbert Xu
A crypto_template generates a crypto_alg object when given a set of parameters. this patch adds the basic data structure fo templates and code to handle their registration/deregistration. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2006-09-21[CRYPTO] api: Split out low-level APIHerbert Xu
The crypto API is made up of the part facing users such as IPsec and the low-level part which is used by cryptographic entities such as algorithms. This patch splits out the latter so that the two APIs are more clearly delineated. As a bonus the low-level API can now be modularised if all algorithms are built as modules.
