How to implement support for hardware accelerated encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We using an ARM processor that includes encryption functionality in hardware and we would like to make use of that feature.

    Are there any examples or documentation how to add new encryption functionality to Windows CE?

    We use Windows Embedded Compact 7.


    Best regards,

  • There is something that i can suggest, but even i have not implemented it, is :

     

    You can implement it at the boot level for secure booting. For that you need to customize your platform dependent code of your bootloader at the OAL level.

  • I'm not an expert on the subject but it seems to me that you have to create a DLL which uses the HW acceleration and register it as a cryptographic service provider (CSP).
