DDSSEC13 — Add support for ChaCha20

  • Key: DDSSEC13-66
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Real-Time Innovations ( Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Ph.D.)
  • Summary:

    The AES-CCM cypher suite used by the built-in authentication plugins is well suited for higher end processors that have hardware support for AES (e.g. the Intel AES-NI instructions and the the AES instructions in ARMv8).

    ARMv7 and other low-end processors don't have hardware support. In these AES can be quite slow.

    To better support lower end processors it would be good to add support for a cypher suite that has reasonable performance without hardware support. The industry seems to be converging around the ChaCha20. See:
