CONFIG_BT_TINYCRYPT_ECC

Emulate ECDH in the Host using TinyCrypt library

Type: bool

Help

If this option is set TinyCrypt library is used for emulating the
ECDH HCI commands and events needed by e.g. LE Secure Connections.
In builds including the BLE Host, if not set the controller crypto is
used for ECDH and if the controller doesn't support the required HCI
commands the LE Secure Connections support will be disabled.
In builds including the HCI Raw interface and the BLE Controller, this
option injects support for the 2 HCI commands required for LE Secure
Connections so that Hosts can make use of those. The option defaults
to enabled for a combined build with Zephyr's own controller, since it
does not have any special ECC support itself (at least not currently).
