    Hello everyone,

    I've read that hardware-assisted cryptography will soon be available but for AES-NI. Anyone heard of hardware acceleration for Via CPUs under FreeBSD?

    I've booted, loaded crypto device and still software for me...


    Thanks,

    tcn.

    Yah, another case of RTFM.

    I'll try loading the padlock kernel module; I hope the new Via Nano-E is supported though; if not, I guess I just have to punch in the new CPUID in the identification routine....


    thanks,
