    59The Crypto API, introduced in Linux 2.5.45, is a generic cryptography library API introduced in the kernel containing support for all popular block ciphers, hash functions, AEAD, HMAC, and compression algorithms. The kernel contains software implementations for major symmetric ciphers as well as allows plugging in implementations which take advantage of hardware components such as the IMX6 CAAM and OcteonTX ZIP/CPT hardware blocks that can accelerate encryption/compression.
