AES on BCM2711 (RPi4)?

Tue Dec 17, 2019 11:31 am

I was wondering if the BCM2711 CPU of the Raspberry Pi 4 (A-72 cortex) features AES hardware acceleration.

I found some information that indicates that there are some CPU opcodes to speed things up. On the other hand i saw some benchmarks that had a result of a mere 60MB/s for a single core which I don't consider that impressive.

No, no crypto extensions.

Big discussion here.
