Hi all,


I’m able to get hold of some hifn boards, and I wonder whether I still need to apply specific patches.

On the suse mailing list, they claim that the patch is already included in main stream kernel, but only works on 32-bit machines.


Besides loading a kernelmodule, any other tweaks todo?


One board I would like to use on an openvpn box. Can that be done without altering distro-supplied openvpn/openssl ?


Another board I intend to use for bulk generating keys/certificates with ejbca.

When hinting this to their developpers, I was asked if there was an pkcs11 driver for the accelerator board.

But shouldn’t it be enough if openssl is capable in talking to the board?



Kind regards, hans.
