menuconfig MBEDTLS
	bool "mbedTLS Support"
	help
	  This option enables the mbedTLS cryptography library.

config MBEDTLS_BUILTIN
	bool "Use Zephyr in-tree mbedTLS version"
	help
	  Link with mbedTLS sources included with Zephyr distribution.
	  Included mbedTLS version is well integrated with and supported
	  by Zephyr, and the recommended choice for most users.

config MBEDTLS_LIBRARY
	bool "Use external mbedTLS library"
	help
	  Use external, out-of-tree prebuilt mbedTLS library. For advanced
	  users only.

config MBEDTLS_CFG_FILE
	string "mbed TLS configuration file"
	depends on MBEDTLS_BUILTIN
	default "config-tls-generic.h"
	help
	  Use a specific mbedTLS configuration file. The default config file
	  file can be tweaked with Kconfig. The default configuration is
	  suitable to communicate with majority of HTTPS servers on the Internet,
	  but has relatively many features enabled. To optimize resources for
	  special TLS usage, use available Kconfig options, or select an
	  alternative config.

config MBEDTLS_SSL_MAX_CONTENT_LEN
	int "Max payload size for TLS protocol message"
	default 1500
	depends on MBEDTLS_BUILTIN
	help
	  The TLS standards mandate max payload size of 16384 bytes. So, for
	  maximum operability and for general-purpose usage, that value must
	  be used. For specific usages, that value can be largely decreased.
	  E.g. for DTLS, payload size is limited by UDP datagram size, and
	  even for HTTPS REST API, the payload can be limited to max size of
	  (REST request, REST response, server certificate(s)).
	  mbedTLS uses this value separate for input and output buffers, so
	  twice this value will be allocated (on mbedTLS own heap, so the
	  value of MBEDTLS_HEAP_SIZE should accommodate that).

config MBEDTLS_DEBUG
	bool "mbed TLS debug activation"
	depends on MBEDTLS_BUILTIN
	help
	  Enable debugging activation for mbed TLS configuration. If you use
	  mbedTLS/Zephyr integration (e.g. net_app), this will activate debug
	  logging (of the level configured by MBEDTLS_DEBUG_LEVEL).
	  If you use mbedTLS directly instead, you will need to perform
	  additional configuration yourself: call
	  mbedtls_ssl_conf_dbg(&mbedtls.conf, my_debug, NULL);
	  mbedtls_debug_set_threshold(level);
	  functions in your application, and create the my_debug() function to
	  actually print something useful.

config MBEDTLS_DEBUG_LEVEL
	int "mbed TLS default debug level"
	depends on MBEDTLS_DEBUG
	default 0
	range 0 4
	help
	  Default mbed TLS debug logging level for Zephyr integration code
	  (from ext/lib/crypto/mbedtls/include/mbedtls/debug.h):
	  0 No debug
	  1 Error
	  2 State change
	  3 Information
	  4 Verbose

config MBEDTLS_TEST
	bool "Compile internal self test functions"
	depends on MBEDTLS_BUILTIN
	help
	  Enable self test function for the crypto algorithms

config MBEDTLS_INSTALL_PATH
	string "mbedTLS install path"
	depends on MBEDTLS_LIBRARY
	help
	  This option holds the path where the mbedTLS libraries and headers are
	  installed. Make sure this option is properly set when MBEDTLS_LIBRARY
	  is enabled otherwise the build will fail.

config MBEDTLS_ENABLE_HEAP
	bool "Enable global heap for mbed TLS"
	help
	  This option enables the mbedtls to use the heap. This setting must
	  be global so that various applications and libraries in Zephyr do not
	  try to do this themselves as there can be only one heap defined
	  in mbedtls. If this is enabled, then the Zephyr will, during the device
	  startup, initialize the heap automatically.

config MBEDTLS_HEAP_SIZE
	int "Heap size for mbed TLS"
	default 512
	depends on MBEDTLS_ENABLE_HEAP
	help
	  The mbedtls routines will use this heap if enabled.
	  See ext/lib/crypto/mbedtls/include/mbedtls/config.h and
	  MBEDTLS_MEMORY_BUFFER_ALLOC_C option for details. That option is not
	  enabled by default.
	  Default value for the heap size is not set as it depends on the
	  application. For streaming communication with arbitrary (HTTPS)
	  servers on the Internet, 32KB + overheads (up to another 20KB) may
	  be needed. For some dedicated and specific usage of mbedtls API, the
	  1000 bytes might be ok.

config APP_LINK_WITH_MBEDTLS
	bool "Link 'app' with MBEDTLS"
	default y
	help
	  Add MBEDTLS header files to the 'app' include path. It may be
	  disabled if the include paths for MBEDTLS are causing aliasing
	  issues for 'app'.
