Our application will run on VM (Cloud environment). If access to
crypto acceleration hardware

(besides Intel AES NI/Intel QAT) are not present, what are the
different available choices ?

Do I need to integrate the OpenSSL or Libgcrypt library and invoke
it's APIs from a DPDK application?

Can we use the AF_ALG protocol so as to use the kernels crypto framework?

Please clarify. Thank you in advance for your support and time.
