"TRESOR is a secure implementation of AES which is resistant against cold boot attacks and other attacks on main memory. The basic idea behind this implementation is to store the secret key inside CPU registers rather than in RAM. All computations take place only on registers, no AES state is ever going to RAM. In particular, the x86 debug registers are misused as secure key storage." .. the kernel integration is mandatory!
- from http://www1.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/tresor
Core-i series with AES-NI support [64-bit] key sizes of 128, 192 and 256 bits
- http://www1.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/ … .0.9_aesni
other x86 CPUs with at least SSE2 [32-bit] only 128 bit key size
- http://www1.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/ … .6.36_i686
for CPUs with at least SSE2 [64-bit] only 128 bit key size

would be nice if there are people who are interessted and want to work together

just created/tested the package - someone who want to give it a try? opinions are welcome ..
http://xerc.de/aur/linux-lts-tresor-3.0.27-1.src.tar.gz [currently x86_64 + AES-NI only]
btw: i'll upgrade the kernel to 3.0.28 (or newer) before commiting to AUR
