Encryption using the ECB vs. AES libraries for nRF581822
Hello, It looks like the mbed nRF51822 library provides the driver for accessing the ECB peripheral to do encryption tasks. When I do a search, I also see a couple of libraries people have shared to do AES encryption.
1) The documentation for the nRF51822 ECB driver.
Am I right in assuming that #2 and #3 aren't using the ECB peripheral on the nRF51822, and are strictly implementing the AES algorithm without the benefit of encryption hardware? It doesn't look like these libraries call the same functions documented in #1, but I'm not sure if mbed does some abstraction of encryption hardware somewhere else so that appropriate platform specific calls are magically made.
