I've been using a Nexus 5 for a while and using FS encryption. Apple's iOS Security document states that:
Every iOS device has a dedicated AES 256 crypto engine built into the DMA path between the flash storage and main system memory, making file encryption highly efficient. Along with the AES engine, SHA-1 is implemented in hardware, further reducing cryptographic operation overhead.
Do any of the Android devices have such hardware to reduce encryption overhead? Is it part of a standard like iOS?
