Subject: nCipher HSM kernel driver submission feedback request
Date: Fri, 13 Mar 2020 09:48:14 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Herbert,

We've been working on getting this driver code upstreamed into drivers/misc since the end of last
year but things stalled a bit on our end. However, we are still interested in getting our submission
approved and would please like your assistance and feedback on this.

The driver code for the hardware is straightforward and does not contain any cryptographic
components as the cryptography is handled within the hardware's secure boundary. We have no
plans to use the linux kernel crypto APIs as our customers require compliance to the FIPS 140
standard or the eIDAS regulations.

Here is a link to the previous email I sent, which also contains more background links to our initial
discussions with Greg and the actual patch.

Can I please have your approval on this submission?
