5.5.1 Crypto parameters

This section describes the parameters for the Crypto plug-in.

The parameters are prefixed with CRYPTO.Crypto, for example:

CRYPTO.Crypto.verbose=1

Table 5-4 Crypto parameters

Name Type Default value Runtime Description
generic_authentication_core_pattern string * false
Install the Arm®v8.3 architected Generic Authentication algorithm on Armv8.3 cores that match one of these patterns. a
pointer_authentication_core_pattern string * false

Install the Armv8.3 architected Pointer Authentication algorithm on Armv8.3 cores that match one of these patterns. a

verbose int 0x0 false Verbosity level:
0Terse
1Verbose
a 

The value is a comma-separated list of glob-style patterns which are matched against the instance names of cores in the system. If there is a match, the architected algorithm is installed on the core, if it supports Armv8.3. For example:

*Install the algorithm on all supported cores
cluster0.*Install the algorithm on all cores in cluster0
cluster0.cpu0Install the algorithm only on cluster0.cpu0
cluster0.*,cluster1.cpu1Install the algorithm on all cores in cluster0 and also on cluster1.cpu1
Empty stringDo not install the algorithm on any core
