Hi,Looking back at the archives, it appears that AES-XTS in dm-crypt runs at half the speed of AES-CBC-ESSIV: http://www.saout.de/pipermail/dm-crypt/2010-November/001348.html. Milan explained it at the time by XTS doing 2 AES operations for each plaintext block. But my understanding of XTS is that it is similar to ESSIV: 1 AES op per 16-byte block, plus 1 op for the sector.
- Did I misread the definition of XTS, and it's really 2 AES ops per 16-byte block?
- Does anybody have more recent performance comparisons, confirming (or not) the performance difference?
Thanks, Yaron _______________________________________________ dm-crypt mailing list dm-crypt@xxxxxxxx http://www.saout.de/mailman/listinfo/dm-crypt
