Description

The illumos encryption framework allows relatively easy addition of new ciphers and hashes.

The ChaCha20 cipher and Poly1305 MAC (no HMAC needed) are specified in RFC 7539, and should be implemented.

Updated by Robert Mustacchi about 7 years ago

We already actually have ChaCha20 in libc and in common/crypto, so it should be fairly straightforward to plug it into the rest of the encryption framework.

I've started some work on this, but want to get pkcs11_softtoken cleaned up first (PKCS#11 3.0 includes support for this, but also adds a number of new crypto functions, so getting that in shape should make it easier to update to 3.0).
