I have been told that new Geode chips found on PC Engine products can handle the encryption of a VPN in hardware. Is this correct? How do I know if zeroshell is doing this?

Thanks,
Ken

In one of the next releases the encryption engine presents in the Geode processors will be used for VPN purposes. I have already compiled the Kernel module geode-aes.ko in the release 1.0.beta11, but OpenSSL does not use it yet.
