Package aes implements AES encryption (formerly Rijndael), as defined in U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 197.
The AES operations in this package are not implemented using constant-time algorithms. An exception is when running on systems with enabled hardware support for AES that makes these operations constant-time. Examples include amd64 systems using AES-NI extensions and s390x systems using Message-Security-Assist extensions. On such systems, when the result of NewCipher is passed to cipher.NewGCM, the GHASH operation used by GCM is also constant-time.
