Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] [RFC] cryptodev: move AES-GMAC to aead algorithms
Date: Wed, 29 Jul 2020 14:36:29 +0000
Message-ID: <CY4PR11MB1830F4563FED0C51C5F7C63A9F700@CY4PR11MB1830.namprd11.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

Hi All,

I would give bit more introduction to this change:
Right now AES-GMAC is auth only algorithm (previously it was cipher+auth -> GCM + GMAC),
but since it is variant of AES-GCM implementation it should probably be AEAD right now (people often wondering why at all it is auth instead of AEAD).
There are few possible implementations let me introduce two of them:
1) As in this patch GMAC is added to AEAD enum, aad_len is set to 0, aad_pointer is unused and authentication length is set in aead.data.length - this is probably the easiest one, but not totally conformant to GMAC spec.
2) Another option could be to use GCM only and add new field aad_len in rte_crypto_sym_op, so when cipher_len == 0 GMAC is used -> this would be conformant implementation but bit trickier.

Sorry if I not included someone in cc list.
