  • OpenWrt 23.05
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Oct 2023
    It's work in progress: https://github.com/Mbed-TLS/mbedtls/blob/development/docs/ar...

    Newer version have okay-ish support, I'd guess the next OpenWRT release will have it again.

  • How can I disable the close_notify message?

    It's related to this Mbed-TLS issue
  • DIY Physical Backed Tokens (EIP-5791) with ESP32 and BLE
    1 project | /r/ethdev | 2 Feb 2023
    i've used the entropy generator from MbedTLS which uses multiple sources of randomness, and seeding it additionally with the chip's mac address and the free heap size at time of creation. it would take a lot to recreate all that "noise" consistently, but i'm open to suggestions on how to make it more secure
  • Help libraries won’t work on the IDE for esp32
    1 project | /r/arduino | 26 Dec 2022
    However on the github page and assuming I found the right source - and this is a HUGE ASSUMPTION - there is a section on porting the library to other platforms.
  • redbean: a single-file actually portable web server with Lua, HTTPS and SQLite
    4 projects | /r/lua | 31 Aug 2022
    Rebean is a single executable written in ANSI C that embeds Lua 5.4, MbedTLS and SQLite. The crazy thing about this is that it is a C binary that runs on six operating systems without any cross compiling thanks to leveraging Justine Tunney's cosmopolitan.
  • Install mbedTLS on Linux
    2 projects | /r/embedded | 3 Jul 2022
    it looks like the commands are all built under https://github.com/Mbed-TLS/mbedtls/tree/development/programs and the arch mbedtls package does some extra work to rename them and copy them into /usr/local/bin: https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-community/blob/packages/mbedtls/trunk/PKGBUILD#L55
  • Elliptic Curve Cryptography Explained
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 May 2021
    If you want to see a real implemention of arbitrary sized integer math, mbedTLS is a great example:


    All of the ECC code in that library relies on this code, which can be accelerated by dedicated hardware.

  • C Deep
    80 projects | dev.to | 27 Feb 2021
    mbed TLS - Another crypto implementation. Apache-2.0
  • WireGuard implementation for LwIP stack
    1 project | /r/WireGuard | 22 Feb 2021
    Definitely, FreeRTOS + LwIP + Mbed TLS is a fairly common combo these days, and Mbed TLS has hardware acceleration where possible.
