wolfSSL supports new A12Z Bionic chip in Macs

Two weeks ago, Apple announced a transition from Intel-based Macs to their very own ‘world-class custom silicon’ chip. This marks a new era for Apple, as they further establish a common architecture throughout their product ecosystem, making it easy for developers to write, update and optimize applications.

Underlying this recent development is Apple’s Universal App Quick Start Program that includes the ‘limited use of a Developer Transition Kit (DTK), a Mac development system based on Apple’s A12Z Bionic System on a Chip (SoC)’ among other services like forums support, beta version of macOS Big Sur and Xcode 12.

So why is this important? 

wolfSSL is a direct partner with ARM, the architecture A12Z Bionic is based upon, and we fully support all the crypto extensions that are built into the new chip. We aim to have the first FIPS certificate for A12Z and will be pushing out benchmarks on the A12Z soon, so stay tuned!
