CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HEAP_SIZE

Heap size for mbed TLS

Type: int

Help

The mbedtls routines will use this heap if enabled. See ext/lib/crypto/mbedtls/include/mbedtls/config.h and MBEDTLS_MEMORY_BUFFER_ALLOC_C option for details. That option is not enabled by default. Default value for the heap size is not set as it depends on the application. For streaming communication with arbitrary (HTTPS) servers on the Internet, 32KB + overheads (up to another 20KB) may be needed. For some dedicated and specific usage of mbedtls API, the 1000 bytes might be ok.
