     kernel configuration file:

	   device crypto
	   device cryptodev
	   device safexcel

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   safexcel_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The safexcel driver implements crypto(4) support for the cryptographic
     acceleration functions of the EIP-97 device found on some Marvell sys-
     tems-on-chip.  The	driver can accelerate the following AES	modes:

     +o	 AES-CBC
     +o	 AES-CTR
     +o	 AES-XTS
     +o	 AES-GCM
     +o	 AES-CCM

     safexcel also implements SHA1 and SHA2 transforms,	and can	combine	AES-
     CBC and AES-CTR with SHA1-HMAC and	SHA2-HMAC for encrypt-then-authenti-
     cate operations.

SEE ALSO
     crypto(4),	ipsec(4), random(4), crypto(7),	geli(8), crypto(9)
