SPEAr 320 C3 coprocessor

Hi everyone,

I hesitated before posting in that sub-forum, my question is also security-related , so I apologize if I'm not in the right place.

I'm working on an embedded system using ST SPEAr 320 processor. That processor embdeds a "C3" coprocessor dedicated to cryptography. I would like to use it, but through openSSL library. Looking at what ST distrib RPMs were containing I could only find libgcrypt, which is GNU library support for cryptography. Couldn't find any crypto engine to plug to openSSL.

Has anyone some clues about whether any linux distribution already includes crypto support for that processor ? Also, kernel driver would probably not be sufficient for openSSL, I probably also need a user-space cyrpto-engine that interface user code with kernel driver.

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance
