The cryptography extension supports the Arm v8 cryptography extensions. The cryptography extension adds new A64, A32, and T32 instructions to advanced SIMD that accelerate the following.
•Advanced encryption standard (AES) encryption and decryption.
•Secure-hash algorithm (SHA) functions SHA-1, SHA-224, and SHA-256.
•Finite-field arithmetic used in algorithms such as Galois/counter mode and elliptic curve cryptography.
