Re: [PATCH 0/1] CryptoPkg/BaseCryptLib: Add EVP implementation for CryptAes.c


Zurcher, Christopher J
 

I’m OK with using a PCD here if there are no other objections.

I agree that this should not be a C file. Based on the description, would a FixedAtBuild PCD work to wrap the code?

 

I don’t know that it warrants a full LibraryClass, but that’s another option.

 

Have you looked at just implementing it in a flavor of the new EDK2 binary crypto payloads? Those are shared and wouldn’t incur the per-module cost.

Thanks to provide the data.

I have a little concern on what is the usage if we just add a standalone C file.

The EDKII build does not support cross package file including in INF, and does not recommend cross module file including in INF. What is the expected usage for the standalone CryptAes.c ?

If you have a private project which want to use this, then you have to write your own INF file. But if so, why not include this CryptAes.c along with the new INF?

Thank you
