+* **Added synchronous Crypto burst API.**
+
+  A new API is introduced in crypto library to handle synchronous cryptographic
+  operations allowing to achieve performance gain for cryptodevs which use
+  CPU based acceleration, such as Intel AES-NI. An implementation for aesni_gcm
+  cryptodev is provided including unit tests. The IPsec example application and
+  ipsec library itself were changed to allow utilization of this new feature.
