NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     nofn - Hifn 7814/7851/7854 HIPP1 crypto processor

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     nofn* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The nofn driver supports cards based on the Hifn 7814, 7851,
and 7854
     HIPP1  packet  processors.  The 7814 and 7854 both contain a
public key
     processor and a random number  generator.   The  public  key
processor registers
  with  the crypto(4) subsystem to support modular exponentiation, and
     the random number generator provides random bits to the random(4) subsystem.

     Currently, no packet processing is supported.

     The nofn device driver appeared in OpenBSD 3.2.
