CONFIG_CC3XX_HW_MUTEX_LOCK

Use hardware mutex for mutually exclusive access to CC3XX resources

Type: bool

Help

A mutual exclusive peripheral is the fastest way to ensure mutually
exclusive access to the ARM CryptoCell hardware on platform which support
it. The MUTEX peripheral is nRF53 platform specific solution.

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.
