Linux kernel and Initialization Vector
My question is I can't seem to find anything in my kernel source code that would point me to whether I have the old way(random number on first, 8 bytes of previous after) or the new way which is to get a random number for each IV.
Can anyone tell me definitively, or give me pointers as to what files to look at in either the /crypto, /drivers/crypto, or /arch/crypto directories that would point me to know which IV solution we have? We have a requirement to support the new way and I just wanna make sure we either have it, or know what files we need to patch to make it happen.
Thanks in advance.
