The optional Cortex-A53 MPCore Cryptography Extension supports the ARMv8 Cryptography Extensions. The Cryptography Extension adds new A64, A32, and T32 instructions to Advanced SIMD that accelerate:
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption and decryption.
The Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) functions SHA-1, SHA-224, and SHA-256.
Finite field arithmetic used in algorithms such as Galois/Counter Mode and Elliptic Curve Cryptography.
See the ARM® Cortex™-A53 MPCore Processor Cryptography Extension Technical Reference Manual for more information.
