glxsb -- Geode LX Security Block crypto accelerator
glxsb* at pci?
The glxsb driver supports the security block of the Geode LX series pro-
cessors. The Geode LX is a member of the AMD Geode family of integrated
x86 system chips.
Driven by periodic checks for available data from the generator, glxsb
supplies entropy to the random(4) driver for common usage.
glxsb also supports acceleration of AES-CBC operations for crypto(4).
crypto(4), i386/intro(4), pci(4), random(4), crypto(9)
The glxsb device first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
The glxsb driver was written for OpenBSD by Tom Cosgrove. It was ported
to NetBSD by
Jared D. McNeill <jmcneill@NetBSD.org>.
The glxsb driver only provides random numbers and AES acceleration.
Since it does not provide HMACs, IPSec will not currently use it; it will
however be used by OpenSSH.
