CONFIG_MBEDTLS_AES_C

AES - Advanced Encryption Standard

Type: bool

Help

This setting will enable AES block cipher, including ECB - Electronic Code Book. Enabling AES will provide a sub-menu which allows for fine grained configuration of specific cipher support. Corresponds to MBEDTLS_AES_C setting in mbed TLS config file.

Direct dependencies

(CC310_BACKEND || MBEDTLS_VANILLA_BACKEND) && NORDIC_SECURITY_BACKEND

(Includes any dependencies from ifs and menus.)
