Subject[PATCH v3 0/7] crypto: AF_ALG: add AEAD and RNG support

This patch set adds AEAD and RNG support to the AF_ALG interface
exported by the kernel crypto API. By extending AF_ALG with AEAD and RNG
support, all cipher types the kernel crypto API allows access to are
now accessible from userspace.

The RNG support is stand-alone.

The AEAD implementation is added to algif_skcipher.c to prevent
re-implementation of the memory moving logic.

The extension for the AEAD support can be summarized with the following
types of changes:

* select the correct crypto API functions (either the ablkcipher
or the aead functions)

* apply the additional data needed for AEAD at the right time
(associated data, authentication tag) -- this includes the addition
of user space interfaces to allow setting this data.

* add the calculation for the memory size needed for encryption and

In addition, the patch set adds a getsockopt implementation to skcipher to
allow user space to inquire about properties of the ciphers (IV size,
block size, authentication data size). This extension would be needed for a
generic user space usage of these ciphers.

The new AEAD and RNG interfaces are fully tested with the test application
provided at [1]. That test application exercises all newly added user space

Stephan Mueller (7):
*tch set was tested on x86_64 and i386.


Changes v2:
* rebase to current cryptodev-2.6 tree
* use memzero_explicit to zeroize AEAD associated data
* use sizeof for determining length of AEAD associated data
* update algif_rng.c covering all suggestions from Daniel Borkmann
* addition of patch 9: add digestsize interface for hashes
* addition of patch to update documentation covering the userspace interface
* change numbers of getsockopt options: separate them from sendmsg interface

Changes v3:
* remove getsockopt interface
* AEAD: associated data is set prepended to the plain/ciphertext
* AEAD: allowing arbitrary associated data lengths
* remove setkey patch as protection was already in the existing code
