Mon Jun 24, 2019 1:05 pm

Are the ARMv8 Crypto Extensions / AES instructions enabled on the RPi4?

Could this be verified please as both RockPi4 (RockChip 3399) and OrangePi (H6) do have AES enabled. Would be such a pity if RPi4 does not have this enabled, which would "degrade" it to a nice kodi box but not for eg VPN ...
