AES-NI support #118
This should already be supported via OpenSSL's engine support:
At one time, I recall having to set global openssl configuration to enable the AES-NI hardware engine. I don't know if that's still necessary, or if OpenSSL is supposed to auto-detect.
Thank you for your feedback vgough !
According to this link, EVP_* methods must be used to activate AES-NI.
Perhaps it could be a good idea to add an EncFS option to show AES-NI status ?
Thank you very much !
Yes having a closed look at the code, sounds like
In addition, according to this link, would be "useless" to make a function telling that AES-NI is supported, the main thing being to use the correct functions in the code itself.
We then first have to be sure that AES-NI functions are used everywhere in the code (developper confirmation needed).
