UBSEC(4) BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual UBSEC(4)
ubsec -- Broadcom and BlueSteel uBsec 5x0x crypto accelerator
ubsec* at pci? dev ? function ?
The ubsec driver supports cards containing any of the following chips:
Bluesteel 5501 The original chipset, no longer made. This extremely rare unit was
not very fast, lacked an RNG, and had a number of other bugs.
Bluesteel 5601 A faster and fixed version of the original, with a random number
unit and large number engine added.
Broadcom BCM5801 A BCM5805 without public key engine or random number generator.
Broadcom BCM5802 A slower version of the BCM5805.
Broadcom BCM5805 Faster version of Bluesteel 5601.
Broadcom BCM5820 64 bit version of the chip, and significantly more advanced.
Broadcom BCM5821 Faster version of the BCM5820. (This is the chip found on the Sun
Crypto Accelerator 1000.)
Broadcom BCM5822 Faster version of the BCM5820.
Broadcom BCM5823 Faster version of the BCM5822.
Broadcom BCM5823 Faster version of the BCM5821, with AES hardware.
The ubsec driver registers itself to accelerate DES, Triple-DES, MD5, SHA1, MD5-HMAC, and
SHA1-HMAC operations for opencrypto(9), and thus for fast_ipsec(4) and crypto(4).
On those models which contain a public key engine (almost all of the more recent ones), this
feature is registered with the crypto(4) subsystem.
On all models except the Bluesteel 5501 and Broadcom 5801, the driver registers itself to
provide random data to the rnd(4) subsystem.
crypto(4), fast_ipsec(4), intro(4), rnd(4), opencrypto(9)
The ubsec device driver appeared in OpenBSD 2.8. The ubsec device driver was imported to
FreeBSD 5.0, back-ported to FreeBSD 4.8, and subsequently imported to NetBSD 2.0.
The BCM5801 and BCM5802 have not actually been tested.
Whilst some of the newer chips support AES, AES is not supported by the driver.
