1.1.3 Cryptography

The following notable cryptographic features are implemented in UEK R4:

  • Accelerated CRC T10 DIF computation with the PCLMULQDQ instruction.

  • LZ4 Cryptographic API.

  • Support for sha256_ssse3, SHA-224, sha512_ssse3, and SHA-384.

  • Support for the AMD cryptographic coprocessor, which can be used to accelerate or offload AES, SHA, and other encryption operations.
