[PATCH v4 13/15] dt-bindings: crypto: ice: document the hwkm property

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


When Qualcomm's Inline Crypto Engine (ICE) contains Hardware
Key Manager (HWKM), and the 'HWKM' mode is enabled, it
supports wrapped keys. However, this also requires firmware
support in Trustzone to work correctly, which may not be available
on all chipsets. In the above scenario, ICE needs to support standard
keys even though HWKM is integrated from a hardware perspective.

Introducing this property so that Hardware wrapped key support
can be enabled/disabled from software based on chipset firmware,
and not just based on hardware version.
