CONFIG_MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER

Use SHA256 small footprint implementation

Type: bool

Help

Use a SHA-256 implementation with smaller footprint. Note, that this implementation will also have a lower performance. On a Cortex-M4 the size of mbedtls_sha256_process() will be reduced from ~2KB to ~0.5KB, however it will also perform around 30% slower. MBEDTLS_SHA256_SMALLER setting in mbed TLS config file.

Defaults

No defaults. Implicitly defaults to n.
