Linux Kernel 4 with EXT4 Crypto

Intel Skylake architecture will have stronger crypto capabilities right on the chip. Paired with Linux Kernel 4’s crypto on the file system you will gain a more solid overall crypto solution. Accelerated and higher bit SSL for online transactions and sensitive data transfer. Accelerated file system I/O using stronger crypto keys. Less latency in the transition between encrypted data in memory and disk. A great solution for the application programming interfaces would be to update I/O routines with a transparent bridge between cipher keys on disk (files) and memory (variables/streams). That could deliver the type of seamless crypto in those software applications that need it.
