This section lists resources related to /dev/crypto interface. Note that cryptodev-linux is a reimplementation of these ideas, on top of linux kernel's cryptographic API. Cryptodev-linux is not a port of the OpenBSD cryptographic framework, thus some information about internals discussed in these documents might not apply.

The /dev/crypto ioctl API is roughly described by the cryptodev.h header file, and by the example files included in the distribution.

Documents related to /dev/crypto and other kernel frameworks are listed below.
