In Cpu type can you have a AES Yes/No
Updated by Jim Pingle over 4 years ago
That does only show up if you have the module loaded. If you don't load the module, nothing shows up, even if the CPU is capable. So there is some value in having it display something either way. Such as "AES-NI Capable: No" vs "AES-NI Capable: Yes (disabled)" vs "AES-NI Capable: Yes (enabled)" or similar. I tend not to want to say enabled/disabled though as that implies it would never be used, which isn't the case since OpenSSL/OpenVPN/etc latch on even with the module unloaded, but IPsec doesn't.
