I'm pleased to announce asynchronous crypto layer for Linux kernel 2.6.
It supports following features:
- multiple asynchronous crypto device queues
- crypto session routing
- crypto session binding
- modular load balancing
- crypto session batching genetically implemented by design
- crypto session priority
- different kinds of crypto operation(RNG, asymmetrical crypto, HMAC and
any other)

Did you include support for the new key/keyring infrastructure introduced
a couple versions ago by David Howells? It allows userspace to create and
manage various sorts of "keys" in kernelspace. If you create and register
a few keytypes for various symmetric and asymmetric ciphers, you could then
take advantage of its support for securely passing keys around in and out
of userspace.
