CONFIG_CC3XX_ATOMIC_LOCK

Use atomic variables for mutually exclusive access to CC3XX resources

Type: bool

Help

Using atomic operations is the fastest way to ensure mutually exclusive
access to the ARM CryptoCell hardware.

Warning: If this configuration is set, every execution requiring use of
the ARM CryptoCell hardware must happen in the same priority. Calling into
mbed TLS APIs from a higher priority while an ongoing operation will lead
to undefined behavior. It is highy recommended to to do all cryptographic
operations in one single thread if this configuration is set.
