Project Configuration

Introduction

ESP-IDF uses kconfiglib which is a Python-based extension to the Kconfig system which provides a compile-time project configuration mechanism. Kconfig is based around options of several types: integer, string, boolean. Kconfig files specify dependencies between options, default values of the options, the way the options are grouped together, etc.

For the complete list of available features please see Kconfig and kconfiglib extentions.

Project Configuration Menu

Application developers can open a terminal-based project configuration menu with the idf.py menuconfig build target.

After being updated, this configuration is saved inside sdkconfig file in the project root directory. Based on sdkconfig, application build targets will generate sdkconfig.h file in the build directory, and will make sdkconfig options available to the project build system and source files.

(For the legacy GNU Make build system, the project configuration menu is opened with make menuconfig.)

Using sdkconfig.defaults

In some cases, such as when sdkconfig file is under revision control, the fact that sdkconfig file gets changed by the build system may be inconvenient. The build system offers a way to avoid this, in the form of sdkconfig.defaults file. This file is never touched by the build system, and must be created manually. It can contain all the options which matter for the given application. The format is the same as that of the sdkconfig file. Once sdkconfig.defaults is created, sdkconfig can be deleted and added to the ignore list of the revision control system (e.g. .gitignore file for git). Project build targets will automatically create sdkconfig file, populated with the settings from sdkconfig.defaults file, and the rest of the settings will be set to their default values. Note that the build process will not override settings that are already in sdkconfig by ones from sdkconfig.defaults. For more information, see 自定义 sdkconfig 的默认值.

Kconfig Formatting Rules

The following attributes of Kconfig files are standardized:

  • Within any menu, option names should have a consistent prefix. The prefix length is currently set to at least 3 characters.

  • The indentation style is 4 characters created by spaces. All sub-items belonging to a parent item are indented by one level deeper. For example, menu is indented by 0 characters, the config inside of the menu by 4 characters, the help of the config by 8 characters and the text of the help by 12 characters.

  • No trailing spaces are allowed at the end of the lines.

  • The maximum length of options is set to 40 characters.

  • The maximum length of lines is set to 120 characters.

  • Lines cannot be wrapped by backslash (because there is a bug in earlier versions of conf-idf which causes that Windows line endings are not recognized after a backslash).

Format checker

tools/check_kconfigs.py is provided for checking the Kconfig formatting rules. The checker checks all Kconfig and Kconfig.projbuild files in the ESP-IDF directory and generates a new file with suffix .new with some recommendations how to fix issues (if there are any). Please note that the checker cannot correct all rules and the responsibility of the developer is to check and make final corrections in order to pass the tests. For example, indentations will be corrected if there isn’t some misleading previous formatting but it cannot come up with a common prefix for options inside a menu.

Backward Compatibility of Kconfig Options

The standard Kconfig tools ignore unknown options in sdkconfig. So if a developer has custom settings for options which are renamed in newer ESP-IDF releases then the given setting for the option would be silently ignored. Therefore, several features have been adopted to avoid this:

  1. confgen.py is used by the tool chain to pre-process sdkconfig files before anything else, for example menuconfig, would read them. As the consequence, the settings for old options will be kept and not ignored.

  2. confgen.py recursively finds all sdkconfig.rename files in ESP-IDF directory which contain old and new Kconfig option names. Old options are replaced by new ones in the sdkconfig file.

  3. confgen.py post-processes sdkconfig files and generates all build outputs (sdkconfig.h, sdkconfig.cmake, auto.conf) by adding a list of compatibility statements, i.e. value of the old option is set the value of the new option (after modification). This is done in order to not break customer codes where old option might still be used.

  4. Deprecated options and their replacements are automatically generated by confgen.py.

Configuration Options Reference

Subsequent sections contain the list of available ESP-IDF options, automatically generated from Kconfig files. Note that depending on the options selected, some options listed here may not be visible by default in the interface of menuconfig.

By convention, all option names are upper case with underscores. When Kconfig generates sdkconfig and sdkconfig.h files, option names are prefixed with CONFIG_. So if an option ENABLE_FOO is defined in a Kconfig file and selected in menuconfig, then sdkconfig and sdkconfig.h files will have CONFIG_ENABLE_FOO defined. In this reference, option names are also prefixed with CONFIG_, same as in the source code.

SDK tool configuration

Contains:

CONFIG_SDK_TOOLPREFIX

Compiler toolchain path/prefix

Found in: SDK tool configuration

The prefix/path that is used to call the toolchain. The default setting assumes a crosstool-ng gcc setup that is in your PATH.

Default value:
  • “riscv32-esp-elf-“

CONFIG_SDK_PYTHON

Python interpreter

Found in: SDK tool configuration

The executable name/path that is used to run python.

(Note: This option is used with the legacy GNU Make build system only.)

Default value:
  • “python”

CONFIG_SDK_MAKE_WARN_UNDEFINED_VARIABLES

‘make’ warns on undefined variables

Found in: SDK tool configuration

Adds –warn-undefined-variables to MAKEFLAGS. This causes make to print a warning any time an undefined variable is referenced.

This option helps find places where a variable reference is misspelled or otherwise missing, but it can be unwanted if you have Makefiles which depend on undefined variables expanding to an empty string.

(Note: this option is used with the legacy GNU Make build system only.)

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_SDK_TOOLCHAIN_SUPPORTS_TIME_WIDE_64_BITS

Toolchain supports time_t wide 64-bits

Found in: SDK tool configuration

Enable this option in case you have a custom toolchain which supports time_t wide 64-bits. This option checks time_t is 64-bits and disables ROM time functions to use the time functions from the toolchain instead. This option allows resolving the Y2K38 problem. See “Setup Linux Toolchain from Scratch” to build a custom toolchain which supports 64-bits time_t.

Note: ESP-IDF does not currently come with any pre-compiled toolchain that supports 64-bit wide time_t. This will change in a future major release, but currently 64-bit time_t requires a custom built toolchain.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

Build type

Contains:

CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE

Application build type

Found in: Build type

Select the way the application is built.

By default, the application is built as a binary file in a format compatible with the ESP-IDF bootloader. In addition to this application, 2nd stage bootloader is also built. Application and bootloader binaries can be written into flash and loaded/executed from there.

Another option, useful for only very small and limited applications, is to only link the .elf file of the application, such that it can be loaded directly into RAM over JTAG. Note that since IRAM and DRAM sizes are very limited, it is not possible to build any complex application this way. However for kinds of testing and debugging, this option may provide faster iterations, since the application does not need to be written into flash. Note that at the moment, ESP-IDF does not contain all the startup code required to initialize the CPUs and ROM memory (data/bss). Therefore it is necessary to execute a bit of ROM code prior to executing the application. A gdbinit file may look as follows (for ESP32):

# Connect to a running instance of OpenOCD target remote :3333 # Reset and halt the target mon reset halt # Run to a specific point in ROM code, # where most of initialization is complete. thb *0x40007d54 c # Load the application into RAM load # Run till app_main tb app_main c

Execute this gdbinit file as follows:

xtensa-esp32-elf-gdb build/app-name.elf -x gdbinit

Example gdbinit files for other targets can be found in tools/test_apps/system/gdb_loadable_elf/

Recommended sdkconfig.defaults for building loadable ELF files is as follows. CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_ELF_RAM is required, other options help reduce application memory footprint.

CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_ELF_RAM=y CONFIG_VFS_SUPPORT_TERMIOS= CONFIG_NEWLIB_NANO_FORMAT=y CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_PRINT_HALT=y CONFIG_ESP_DEBUG_STUBS_ENABLE= CONFIG_ESP_ERR_TO_NAME_LOOKUP=

Available options:
  • Default (binary application + 2nd stage bootloader) (APP_BUILD_TYPE_APP_2NDBOOT)

  • ELF file, loadable into RAM (EXPERIMENTAL)) (APP_BUILD_TYPE_ELF_RAM)

Application manager

Contains:

CONFIG_APP_COMPILE_TIME_DATE

Use time/date stamp for app

Found in: Application manager

If set, then the app will be built with the current time/date stamp. It is stored in the app description structure. If not set, time/date stamp will be excluded from app image. This can be useful for getting the same binary image files made from the same source, but at different times.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_APP_EXCLUDE_PROJECT_VER_VAR

Exclude PROJECT_VER from firmware image

Found in: Application manager

The PROJECT_VER variable from the build system will not affect the firmware image. This value will not be contained in the esp_app_desc structure.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_EXCLUDE_PROJECT_NAME_VAR

Exclude PROJECT_NAME from firmware image

Found in: Application manager

The PROJECT_NAME variable from the build system will not affect the firmware image. This value will not be contained in the esp_app_desc structure.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_PROJECT_VER_FROM_CONFIG

Get the project version from Kconfig

Found in: Application manager

If this is enabled, then config item APP_PROJECT_VER will be used for the variable PROJECT_VER. Other ways to set PROJECT_VER will be ignored.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_PROJECT_VER

Project version

Found in: Application manager > CONFIG_APP_PROJECT_VER_FROM_CONFIG

Project version

Default value:

CONFIG_APP_RETRIEVE_LEN_ELF_SHA

The length of APP ELF SHA is stored in RAM(chars)

Found in: Application manager

At startup, the app will read this many hex characters from the embedded APP ELF SHA-256 hash value and store it in static RAM. This ensures the app ELF SHA-256 value is always available if it needs to be printed by the panic handler code. Changing this value will change the size of a static buffer, in bytes.

Range:
  • from 8 to 64

Default value:
  • 16

Bootloader config

Contains:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION

Bootloader optimization Level

Found in: Bootloader config

This option sets compiler optimization level (gcc -O argument) for the bootloader.

  • The default “Size” setting will add the -0s flag to CFLAGS.

  • The “Debug” setting will add the -Og flag to CFLAGS.

  • The “Performance” setting will add the -O2 flag to CFLAGS.

  • The “None” setting will add the -O0 flag to CFLAGS.

Note that custom optimization levels may be unsupported.

Available options:
  • Size (-Os) (BOOTLOADER_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_SIZE)

  • Debug (-Og) (BOOTLOADER_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_DEBUG)

  • Debug (BOOTLOADER_LOG_LEVEL_DEBUG)

  • Verbose (BOOTLOADER_LOG_LEVEL_VERBOSE)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_VDDSDIO_BOOST

VDDSDIO LDO voltage

Found in: Bootloader config

If this option is enabled, and VDDSDIO LDO is set to 1.8V (using eFuse or MTDI bootstrapping pin), bootloader will change LDO settings to output 1.9V instead. This helps prevent flash chip from browning out during flash programming operations.

This option has no effect if VDDSDIO is set to 3.3V, or if the internal VDDSDIO regulator is disabled via eFuse.

Available options:
  • 1.8V (BOOTLOADER_VDDSDIO_BOOST_1_8V)

  • 1.9V (BOOTLOADER_VDDSDIO_BOOST_1_9V)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

GPIO triggers factory reset

Found in: Bootloader config

Allows to reset the device to factory settings: - clear one or more data partitions; - boot from “factory” partition. The factory reset will occur if there is a GPIO input held at the configured level while device starts up. See settings below.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_NUM_PIN_FACTORY_RESET

Number of the GPIO input for factory reset

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

The selected GPIO will be configured as an input with internal pull-up enabled (note that on some SoCs. not all pins have an internal pull-up, consult the hardware datasheet for details.) To trigger a factory reset, this GPIO must be held high or low (as configured) on startup.

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET_PIN_LEVEL

Factory reset GPIO level

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

Pin level for factory reset, can be triggered on low or high.

Available options:
  • Reset on GPIO low (BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET_PIN_LOW)

  • Reset on GPIO high (BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET_PIN_HIGH)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_OTA_DATA_ERASE

Clear OTA data on factory reset (select factory partition)

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

The device will boot from “factory” partition (or OTA slot 0 if no factory partition is present) after a factory reset.

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_DATA_FACTORY_RESET

Comma-separated names of partitions to clear on factory reset

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

Allows customers to select which data partitions will be erased while factory reset.

Specify the names of partitions as a comma-delimited with optional spaces for readability. (Like this: “nvs, phy_init, …”) Make sure that the name specified in the partition table and here are the same. Partitions of type “app” cannot be specified here.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST

GPIO triggers boot from test app partition

Found in: Bootloader config

Allows to run the test app from “TEST” partition. A boot from “test” partition will occur if there is a GPIO input pulled low while device starts up. See settings below.

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_NUM_PIN_APP_TEST

Number of the GPIO input to boot TEST partition

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST

The selected GPIO will be configured as an input with internal pull-up enabled. To trigger a test app, this GPIO must be pulled low on reset. After the GPIO input is deactivated and the device reboots, the old application will boot. (factory or OTA[x]). Note that GPIO34-39 do not have an internal pullup and an external one must be provided.

Range:
Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_HOLD_TIME_GPIO

Hold time of GPIO for reset/test mode (seconds)

Found in: Bootloader config

The GPIO must be held low continuously for this period of time after reset before a factory reset or test partition boot (as applicable) is performed.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE

Use RTC watchdog in start code

Found in: Bootloader config

Tracks the execution time of startup code. If the execution time is exceeded, the RTC_WDT will restart system. It is also useful to prevent a lock up in start code caused by an unstable power source. NOTE: Tracks the execution time starts from the bootloader code - re-set timeout, while selecting the source for slow_clk - and ends calling app_main. Re-set timeout is needed due to WDT uses a SLOW_CLK clock source. After changing a frequency slow_clk a time of WDT needs to re-set for new frequency. slow_clk depends on ESP32_RTC_CLK_SRC (INTERNAL_RC or EXTERNAL_CRYSTAL).

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_DISABLE_IN_USER_CODE

Allows RTC watchdog disable in user code

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE

If this option is set, the ESP-IDF app must explicitly reset, feed, or disable the rtc_wdt in the app’s own code. If this option is not set (default), then rtc_wdt will be disabled by ESP-IDF before calling the app_main() function.

Use function rtc_wdt_feed() for resetting counter of rtc_wdt. Use function rtc_wdt_disable() for disabling rtc_wdt.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_TIME_MS

Timeout for RTC watchdog (ms)

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE

Verify that this parameter is correct and more then the execution time. Pay attention to options such as reset to factory, trigger test partition and encryption on boot - these options can increase the execution time. Note: RTC_WDT will reset while encryption operations will be performed.

Range:
  • from 0 to 120000

Default value:
  • 9000

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE

Enable app rollback support

Found in: Bootloader config

After updating the app, the bootloader runs a new app with the “ESP_OTA_IMG_PENDING_VERIFY” state set. This state prevents the re-run of this app. After the first boot of the new app in the user code, the function should be called to confirm the operability of the app or vice versa about its non-operability. If the app is working, then it is marked as valid. Otherwise, it is marked as not valid and rolls back to the previous working app. A reboot is performed, and the app is booted before the software update. Note: If during the first boot a new app the power goes out or the WDT works, then roll back will happen. Rollback is possible only between the apps with the same security versions.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

Enable app anti-rollback support

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE

This option prevents rollback to previous firmware/application image with lower security version.

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_SECURE_VERSION

eFuse secure version of app

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

The secure version is the sequence number stored in the header of each firmware. The security version is set in the bootloader, version is recorded in the eFuse field as the number of set ones. The allocated number of bits in the efuse field for storing the security version is limited (see BOOTLOADER_APP_SEC_VER_SIZE_EFUSE_FIELD option).

Bootloader: When bootloader selects an app to boot, an app is selected that has a security version greater or equal that recorded in eFuse field. The app is booted with a higher (or equal) secure version.

The security version is worth increasing if in previous versions there is a significant vulnerability and their use is not acceptable.

Your partition table should has a scheme with ota_0 + ota_1 (without factory).

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_SEC_VER_SIZE_EFUSE_FIELD

Size of the efuse secure version field

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

The size of the efuse secure version field. Its length is limited to 32 bits for ESP32 and 16 bits for ESP32-S2. This determines how many times the security version can be increased.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_EFUSE_SECURE_VERSION_EMULATE

Emulate operations with efuse secure version(only test)

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

This option allows to emulate read/write operations with all eFuses and efuse secure version. It allows to test anti-rollback implemention without permanent write eFuse bits. There should be an entry in partition table with following details: emul_efuse, data, efuse, , 0x2000.

This option enables: EFUSE_VIRTUAL and EFUSE_VIRTUAL_KEEP_IN_FLASH.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_SKIP_VALIDATE_IN_DEEP_SLEEP

Skip image validation when exiting deep sleep

Found in: Bootloader config

This option disables the normal validation of an image coming out of deep sleep (checksums, SHA256, and signature). This is a trade-off between wakeup performance from deep sleep, and image integrity checks.

Only enable this if you know what you are doing. It should not be used in conjunction with using deep_sleep() entry and changing the active OTA partition as this would skip the validation upon first load of the new OTA partition.

It is possible to enable this option with Secure Boot if “allow insecure options” is enabled, however it’s strongly recommended to NOT enable it as it may allow a Secure Boot bypass.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_SKIP_VALIDATE_ON_POWER_ON

Skip image validation from power on reset (READ HELP FIRST)

Found in: Bootloader config

Some applications need to boot very quickly from power on. By default, the entire app binary is read from flash and verified which takes up a significant portion of the boot time.

Enabling this option will skip validation of the app when the SoC boots from power on. Note that in this case it’s not possible for the bootloader to detect if an app image is corrupted in the flash, therefore it’s not possible to safely fall back to a different app partition. Flash corruption of this kind is unlikely but can happen if there is a serious firmware bug or physical damage.

Following other reset types, the bootloader will still validate the app image. This increases the chances that flash corruption resulting in a crash can be detected following soft reset, and the bootloader will fall back to a valid app image. To increase the chances of successfully recovering from a flash corruption event, keep the option BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE enabled and consider also enabling BOOTLOADER_WDT_DISABLE_IN_USER_CODE - then manually disable the RTC Watchdog once the app is running. In addition, enable both the Task and Interrupt watchdog timers with reset options set.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_SKIP_VALIDATE_ALWAYS

Skip image validation always (READ HELP FIRST)

Found in: Bootloader config

Selecting this option prevents the bootloader from ever validating the app image before booting it. Any flash corruption of the selected app partition will make the entire SoC unbootable.

Although flash corruption is a very rare case, it is not recommended to select this option. Consider selecting “Skip image validation from power on reset” instead. However, if boot time is the only important factor then it can be enabled.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_CUSTOM_RESERVE_RTC

Reserve RTC FAST memory for custom purposes

Found in: Bootloader config

This option allows the customer to place data in the RTC FAST memory, this area remains valid when rebooted, except for power loss. This memory is located at a fixed address and is available for both the bootloader and the application. (The application and bootoloader must be compiled with the same option). The RTC FAST memory has access only through PRO_CPU.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_CUSTOM_RESERVE_RTC_SIZE

Size in bytes for custom purposes

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_CUSTOM_RESERVE_RTC

This option reserves in RTC FAST memory the area for custom purposes. If you want to create your own bootloader and save more information in this area of memory, you can increase it. It must be a multiple of 4 bytes. This area (rtc_retain_mem_t) is reserved and has access from the bootloader and an application.

Range:
Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FLASH_XMC_SUPPORT

Enable the support for flash chips of XMC (READ HELP FIRST)

Found in: Bootloader config

Perform the startup flow recommended by XMC. Please consult XMC for the details of this flow. XMC chips will be forbidden to be used, when this option is disabled.

DON’T DISABLE THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

Security features

Contains:

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_NO_SECURE_BOOT

Require signed app images

Found in: Security features

Require apps to be signed to verify their integrity.

This option uses the same app signature scheme as hardware secure boot, but unlike hardware secure boot it does not prevent the bootloader from being physically updated. This means that the device can be secured against remote network access, but not physical access. Compared to using hardware Secure Boot this option is much simpler to implement.

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_SCHEME

App Signing Scheme

Found in: Security features

Select the Secure App signing scheme. Depends on the Chip Revision. There are two options: 1. ECDSA based secure boot scheme. (Only choice for Secure Boot V1) Supported in ESP32 and ESP32-ECO3. 2. The RSA based secure boot scheme. (Only choice for Secure Boot V2) Supported in ESP32-ECO3 (ESP32 Chip Revision 3 onwards), ESP32-S2, ESP32-C3, ESP32-S3.

Available options:
  • ECDSA (SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_ECDSA_SCHEME)

    Embeds the ECDSA public key in the bootloader and signs the application with an ECDSA key.

    Refer to the documentation before enabling.

  • RSA (SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_RSA_SCHEME)

    Appends the RSA-3072 based Signature block to the application. Refer to <Secure Boot Version 2 documentation link> before enabling.

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_ON_UPDATE_NO_SECURE_BOOT

Verify app signature on update

Found in: Security features

If this option is set, any OTA updated apps will have the signature verified before being considered valid.

When enabled, the signature is automatically checked whenever the esp_ota_ops.h APIs are used for OTA updates, or esp_image_format.h APIs are used to verify apps.

If hardware secure boot is enabled, this option is always enabled and cannot be disabled. If hardware secure boot is not enabled, this option still adds significant security against network-based attackers by preventing spoofing of OTA updates.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT

Enable hardware Secure Boot in bootloader (READ DOCS FIRST)

Found in: Security features

Build a bootloader which enables Secure Boot on first boot.

Once enabled, Secure Boot will not boot a modified bootloader. The bootloader will only load a partition table or boot an app if the data has a verified digital signature. There are implications for reflashing updated apps once secure boot is enabled.

When enabling secure boot, JTAG and ROM BASIC Interpreter are permanently disabled by default.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_VERSION

Select secure boot version

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT

Select the Secure Boot Version. Depends on the Chip Revision. Secure Boot V2 is the new RSA based secure boot scheme. Supported in ESP32-ECO3 (ESP32 Chip Revision 3 onwards), ESP32-S2, ESP32-C3 ECO3. Secure Boot V1 is the AES based secure boot scheme. Supported in ESP32 and ESP32-ECO3.

Available options:
  • Enable Secure Boot version 1 (SECURE_BOOT_V1_ENABLED)

    Build a bootloader which enables secure boot version 1 on first boot. Refer to the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer’s Guide for this version before enabling.

  • Enable Secure Boot version 2 (SECURE_BOOT_V2_ENABLED)

    Build a bootloader which enables Secure Boot version 2 on first boot. Refer to Secure Boot V2 section of the ESP-IDF Programmer’s Guide for this version before enabling.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_BUILD_SIGNED_BINARIES

Sign binaries during build

Found in: Security features

Once secure boot or signed app requirement is enabled, app images are required to be signed.

If enabled (default), these binary files are signed as part of the build process. The file named in “Secure boot private signing key” will be used to sign the image.

If disabled, unsigned app/partition data will be built. They must be signed manually using espsecure.py. Version 1 to enable ECDSA Based Secure Boot and Version 2 to enable RSA based Secure Boot. (for example, on a remote signing server.)

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_SIGNING_KEY

Secure boot private signing key

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_BUILD_SIGNED_BINARIES

Path to the key file used to sign app images.

Key file is an ECDSA private key (NIST256p curve) in PEM format for Secure Boot V1. Key file is an RSA private key in PEM format for Secure Boot V2.

Path is evaluated relative to the project directory.

You can generate a new signing key by running the following command: espsecure.py generate_signing_key secure_boot_signing_key.pem

See the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer’s Guide for this version for details.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_VERIFICATION_KEY

Secure boot public signature verification key

Found in: Security features

Path to a public key file used to verify signed images. Secure Boot V1: This ECDSA public key is compiled into the bootloader and/or app, to verify app images. Secure Boot V2: This RSA public key is compiled into the signature block at the end of the bootloader/app.

Key file is in raw binary format, and can be extracted from a PEM formatted private key using the espsecure.py extract_public_key command.

Refer to the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer’s Guide for this version before enabling.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_INSECURE

Allow potentially insecure options

Found in: Security features

You can disable some of the default protections offered by secure boot, in order to enable testing or a custom combination of security features.

Only enable these options if you are very sure.

Refer to the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer’s Guide for this version before enabling.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENC_ENABLED

Enable flash encryption on boot (READ DOCS FIRST)

Found in: Security features

If this option is set, flash contents will be encrypted by the bootloader on first boot.

Note: After first boot, the system will be permanently encrypted. Re-flashing an encrypted system is complicated and not always possible.

Read Flash 加密 before enabling.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE

Enable usage mode

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENC_ENABLED

By default Development mode is enabled which allows ROM download mode to perform flash encryption operations (plaintext is sent to the device, and it encrypts it internally and writes ciphertext to flash.) This mode is not secure, it’s possible for an attacker to write their own chosen plaintext to flash.

Release mode should always be selected for production or manufacturing. Once enabled it’s no longer possible for the device in ROM Download Mode to use the flash encryption hardware.

Refer to the Flash Encryption section of the ESP-IDF Programmer’s Guide for details.

Available options:
  • Development (NOT SECURE) (SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_DEVELOPMENT)

  • Release (SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_RELEASE)

Potentially insecure options

Contains:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_JTAG

Allow JTAG Debugging

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), the bootloader will permanently disable JTAG (across entire chip) on first boot when either secure boot or flash encryption is enabled.

Setting this option leaves JTAG on for debugging, which negates all protections of flash encryption and some of the protections of secure boot.

Only set this option in testing environments.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_SHORT_APP_PARTITION

Allow app partition length not 64KB aligned

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), app partition size must be a multiple of 64KB. App images are padded to 64KB length, and the bootloader checks any trailing bytes after the signature (before the next 64KB boundary) have not been written. This is because flash cache maps entire 64KB pages into the address space. This prevents an attacker from appending unverified data after the app image in the flash, causing it to be mapped into the address space.

Setting this option allows the app partition length to be unaligned, and disables padding of the app image to this length. It is generally not recommended to set this option, unless you have a legacy partitioning scheme which doesn’t support 64KB aligned partition lengths.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_V2_ALLOW_EFUSE_RD_DIS

Allow additional read protecting of efuses

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default, recommended), on first boot the bootloader will burn the WR_DIS_RD_DIS efuse when Secure Boot is enabled. This prevents any more efuses from being read protected.

If this option is set, it will remain possible to write the EFUSE_RD_DIS efuse field after Secure Boot is enabled. This may allow an attacker to read-protect the BLK2 efuse (for ESP32) and BLOCK4-BLOCK10 (i.e. BLOCK_KEY0-BLOCK_KEY5)(for other chips) holding the public key digest, causing an immediate denial of service and possibly allowing an additional fault injection attack to bypass the signature protection.

NOTE: Once a BLOCK is read-protected, the application will read all zeros from that block

NOTE: If “UART ROM download mode (Permanently disabled (recommended))” or “UART ROM download mode (Permanently switch to Secure mode (recommended))” is set, then it is __NOT__ possible to read/write efuses using espefuse.py utility. However, efuse can be read/written from the application

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_UNUSED_DIGEST_SLOTS

Leave unused digest slots available (not revoke)

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), during startup in the app all unused digest slots will be revoked. To revoke unused slot will be called esp_efuse_set_digest_revoke(num_digest) for each digest. Revoking unused digest slots makes ensures that no trusted keys can be added later by an attacker. If set, it means that you have a plan to use unused digests slots later.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_UART_BOOTLOADER_ALLOW_ENC

Leave UART bootloader encryption enabled

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), the bootloader will permanently disable UART bootloader encryption access on first boot. If set, the UART bootloader will still be able to access hardware encryption.

It is recommended to only set this option in testing environments.

Default value:
  • No (disabled) if SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_DEVELOPMENT

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_UART_BOOTLOADER_ALLOW_CACHE

Leave UART bootloader flash cache enabled

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), the bootloader will permanently disable UART bootloader flash cache access on first boot. If set, the UART bootloader will still be able to access the flash cache.

Only set this option in testing environments.

Default value:
  • No (disabled) if SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_DEVELOPMENT

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_REQUIRE_ALREADY_ENABLED

Require flash encryption to be already enabled

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), and flash encryption is not yet enabled in eFuses, the 2nd stage bootloader will enable flash encryption: generate the flash encryption key and program eFuses. If this option is set, and flash encryption is not yet enabled, the bootloader will error out and reboot. If flash encryption is enabled in eFuses, this option does not change the bootloader behavior.

Only use this option in testing environments, to avoid accidentally enabling flash encryption on the wrong device. The device needs to have flash encryption already enabled using espefuse.py.

Default value:
  • No (disabled) if SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_DEVELOPMENT

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_CHECK_ENC_EN_IN_APP

Check Flash Encryption enabled on app startup

Found in: Security features

If set (default), in an app during startup code, there is a check of the flash encryption eFuse bit is on (as the bootloader should already have set it). The app requires this bit is on to continue work otherwise abort.

If not set, the app does not care if the flash encryption eFuse bit is set or not.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_UART_ROM_DL_MODE

UART ROM download mode

Found in: Security features

Available options:
  • UART ROM download mode (Permanently disabled (recommended)) (SECURE_DISABLE_ROM_DL_MODE)

    If set, during startup the app will burn an eFuse bit to permanently disable the UART ROM Download Mode. This prevents any future use of esptool.py, espefuse.py and similar tools.

    Once disabled, if the SoC is booted with strapping pins set for ROM Download Mode then an error is printed instead.

    It is recommended to enable this option in any production application where Flash Encryption and/or Secure Boot is enabled and access to Download Mode is not required.

    It is also possible to permanently disable Download Mode by calling esp_efuse_disable_rom_download_mode() at runtime.

  • UART ROM download mode (Permanently switch to Secure mode (recommended)) (SECURE_ENABLE_SECURE_ROM_DL_MODE)

    If set, during startup the app will burn an eFuse bit to permanently switch the UART ROM Download Mode into a separate Secure Download mode. This option can only work if Download Mode is not already disabled by eFuse.

    Secure Download mode limits the use of Download Mode functions to simple flash read, write and erase operations, plus a command to return a summary of currently enabled security features.

    Secure Download mode is not compatible with the esptool.py flasher stub feature, espefuse.py, read/writing memory or registers, encrypted download, or any other features that interact with unsupported Download Mode commands.

    Secure Download mode should be enabled in any application where Flash Encryption and/or Secure Boot is enabled. Disabling this option does not immediately cancel the benefits of the security features, but it increases the potential “attack surface” for an attacker to try and bypass them with a successful physical attack.

    It is also possible to enable secure download mode at runtime by calling esp_efuse_enable_rom_secure_download_mode()

    Note: Secure Download mode is not available for ESP32 (includes revisions till ECO3).

  • UART ROM download mode (Enabled (not recommended)) (SECURE_INSECURE_ALLOW_DL_MODE)

    This is a potentially insecure option. Enabling this option will allow the full UART download mode to stay enabled. This option SHOULD NOT BE ENABLED for production use cases.

Boot ROM Behavior

Contains:

CONFIG_BOOT_ROM_LOG_SCHEME

Permanently change Boot ROM output

Found in: Boot ROM Behavior

Controls the Boot ROM log behavior. The rom log behavior can only be changed for once, specific eFuse bit(s) will be burned at app boot stage.

Available options:
  • Always Log (BOOT_ROM_LOG_ALWAYS_ON)

    Always print ROM logs, this is the default behavior.

  • Permanently disable logging (BOOT_ROM_LOG_ALWAYS_OFF)

    Don’t print ROM logs.

  • Log on GPIO High (BOOT_ROM_LOG_ON_GPIO_HIGH)

    Print ROM logs when GPIO level is high during start up. The GPIO number is chip dependent, e.g. on ESP32-S2, the control GPIO is GPIO46.

  • Log on GPIO Low (BOOT_ROM_LOG_ON_GPIO_LOW)

    Print ROM logs when GPIO level is low during start up. The GPIO number is chip dependent, e.g. on ESP32-S2, the control GPIO is GPIO46.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_NO_STUB

Disable download stub

Found in: Serial flasher config

The flasher tool sends a precompiled download stub first by default. That stub allows things like compressed downloads and more. Usually you should not need to disable that feature

Found in: Serial flasher config

If this option is set, flashing the project will automatically detect the flash size of the target chip and update the bootloader image before it is flashed.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_BEFORE

Before flashing

Found in: Serial flasher config

Configure whether esptool.py should reset the ESP32 before flashing.

Automatic resetting depends on the RTS & DTR signals being wired from the serial port to the ESP32. Most USB development boards do this internally.

Partition Table

Contains:

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_TYPE

Partition Table

Found in: Partition Table

The partition table to flash to the ESP32. The partition table determines where apps, data and other resources are expected to be found.

The predefined partition table CSV descriptions can be found in the components/partition_table directory. These are mostly intended for example and development use, it’s expect that for production use you will copy one of these CSV files and create a custom partition CSV for your application.

Available options:
  • Single factory app, no OTA (PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP)

    This is the default partition table, designed to fit into a 2MB or larger flash with a single 1MB app partition.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp.csv

    This partition table is not suitable for an app that needs OTA (over the air update) capability.

  • Single factory app (large), no OTA (PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP_LARGE)

    This is a variation of the default partition table, that expands the 1MB app partition size to 1.5MB to fit more code.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp_large.csv

    This partition table is not suitable for an app that needs OTA (over the air update) capability.

  • Factory app, two OTA definitions (PARTITION_TABLE_TWO_OTA)

    This is a basic OTA-enabled partition table with a factory app partition plus two OTA app partitions. All are 1MB, so this partition table requires 4MB or larger flash size.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_two_ota.csv

  • Custom partition table CSV (PARTITION_TABLE_CUSTOM)

    Specify the path to the partition table CSV to use for your project.

    Consult the Partition Table section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

  • Single factory app, no OTA, encrypted NVS (PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP_ENCRYPTED_NVS)

    This is a variation of the default “Single factory app, no OTA” partition table that supports encrypted NVS when using flash encryption. See the Flash Encryption section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp_encr_nvs.csv

  • Single factory app (large), no OTA, encrypted NVS (PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP_LARGE_ENC_NVS)

    This is a variation of the “Single factory app (large), no OTA” partition table that supports encrypted NVS when using flash encryption. See the Flash Encryption section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp_large_encr_nvs.csv

  • Factory app, two OTA definitions, encrypted NVS (PARTITION_TABLE_TWO_OTA_ENCRYPTED_NVS)

    This is a variation of the “Factory app, two OTA definitions” partition table that supports encrypted NVS when using flash encryption. See the Flash Encryption section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_two_ota_encr_nvs.csv

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_CUSTOM_FILENAME

Custom partition CSV file

Found in: Partition Table

Name of the custom partition CSV filename. This path is evaluated relative to the project root directory.

Default value:
  • “partitions.csv”

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_OFFSET

Offset of partition table

Found in: Partition Table

The address of partition table (by default 0x8000). Allows you to move the partition table, it gives more space for the bootloader. Note that the bootloader and app will both need to be compiled with the same PARTITION_TABLE_OFFSET value.

This number should be a multiple of 0x1000.

Note that partition offsets in the partition table CSV file may need to be changed if this value is set to a higher value. To have each partition offset adapt to the configured partition table offset, leave all partition offsets blank in the CSV file.

Default value:
  • “0x8000”

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_MD5

Generate an MD5 checksum for the partition table

Found in: Partition Table

Generate an MD5 checksum for the partition table for protecting the integrity of the table. The generation should be turned off for legacy bootloaders which cannot recognize the MD5 checksum in the partition table.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled) if ESP32_COMPATIBLE_PRE_V3_1_BOOTLOADERS

Compiler options

Contains:

CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION

Optimization Level

Found in: Compiler options

This option sets compiler optimization level (gcc -O argument) for the app.

  • The “Default” setting will add the -0g flag to CFLAGS.

  • The “Size” setting will add the -0s flag to CFLAGS.

  • The “Performance” setting will add the -O2 flag to CFLAGS.

  • The “None” setting will add the -O0 flag to CFLAGS.

The “Size” setting cause the compiled code to be smaller and faster, but may lead to difficulties of correlating code addresses to source file lines when debugging.

The “Performance” setting causes the compiled code to be larger and faster, but will be easier to correlated code addresses to source file lines.

“None” with -O0 produces compiled code without optimization.

Note that custom optimization levels may be unsupported.

Compiler optimization for the IDF bootloader is set separately, see the BOOTLOADER_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION setting.

Available options:
  • Debug (-Og) (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_DEFAULT)

  • Optimize for size (-Os) (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_SIZE)

  • Optimize for performance (-O2) (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_PERF)

  • Debug without optimization (-O0) (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_NONE)

CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTION_LEVEL

Assertion level

Found in: Compiler options

Assertions can be:

  • Enabled. Failure will print verbose assertion details. This is the default.

  • Set to “silent” to save code size (failed assertions will abort() but user needs to use the aborting address to find the line number with the failed assertion.)

  • Disabled entirely (not recommended for most configurations.) -DNDEBUG is added to CPPFLAGS in this case.

Available options:
  • Enabled (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTIONS_ENABLE)

    Enable assertions. Assertion content and line number will be printed on failure.

  • Silent (saves code size) (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTIONS_SILENT)

    Enable silent assertions. Failed assertions will abort(), user needs to use the aborting address to find the line number with the failed assertion.

  • Disabled (sets -DNDEBUG) (COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTIONS_DISABLE)

    If assertions are disabled, -DNDEBUG is added to CPPFLAGS.

CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_CHECKS_SILENT

Disable messages in ESP_RETURN_ON_* and ESP_EXIT_ON_* macros

Found in: Compiler options

If enabled, the error messages will be discarded in following check macros: - ESP_RETURN_ON_ERROR - ESP_EXIT_ON_ERROR - ESP_RETURN_ON_FALSE - ESP_EXIT_ON_FALSE

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_HIDE_PATHS_MACROS

Replace ESP-IDF and project paths in binaries

Found in: Compiler options

When expanding the __FILE__ and __BASE_FILE__ macros, replace paths inside ESP-IDF with paths relative to the placeholder string “IDF”, and convert paths inside the project directory to relative paths.

This allows building the project with assertions or other code that embeds file paths, without the binary containing the exact path to the IDF or project directories.

This option passes -fmacro-prefix-map options to the GCC command line. To replace additional paths in your binaries, modify the project CMakeLists.txt file to pass custom -fmacro-prefix-map or -ffile-prefix-map arguments.

CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_EXCEPTIONS

Enable C++ exceptions

Found in: Compiler options

Enabling this option compiles all IDF C++ files with exception support enabled.

Disabling this option disables C++ exception support in all compiled files, and any libstdc++ code which throws an exception will abort instead.

Enabling this option currently adds an additional ~500 bytes of heap overhead when an exception is thrown in user code for the first time.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

Contains:

CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_EXCEPTIONS_EMG_POOL_SIZE

Emergency Pool Size

Found in: Compiler options > CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_EXCEPTIONS

Size (in bytes) of the emergency memory pool for C++ exceptions. This pool will be used to allocate memory for thrown exceptions when there is not enough memory on the heap.

Default value:

CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_RTTI

Enable C++ run-time type info (RTTI)

Found in: Compiler options

Enabling this option compiles all C++ files with RTTI support enabled. This increases binary size (typically by tens of kB) but allows using dynamic_cast conversion and typeid operator.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE

Stack smashing protection mode

Found in: Compiler options

Stack smashing protection mode. Emit extra code to check for buffer overflows, such as stack smashing attacks. This is done by adding a guard variable to functions with vulnerable objects. The guards are initialized when a function is entered and then checked when the function exits. If a guard check fails, program is halted. Protection has the following modes:

  • In NORMAL mode (GCC flag: -fstack-protector) only functions that call alloca, and functions with buffers larger than 8 bytes are protected.

  • STRONG mode (GCC flag: -fstack-protector-strong) is like NORMAL, but includes additional functions to be protected – those that have local array definitions, or have references to local frame addresses.

  • In OVERALL mode (GCC flag: -fstack-protector-all) all functions are protected.

Modes have the following impact on code performance and coverage:

  • performance: NORMAL > STRONG > OVERALL

  • coverage: NORMAL < STRONG < OVERALL

The performance impact includes increasing the amount of stack memory required for each task.

Available options:
  • None (COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_NONE)

  • Normal (COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_NORM)

  • Strong (COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_STRONG)

  • Overall (COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_ALL)

CONFIG_COMPILER_WARN_WRITE_STRINGS

Enable -Wwrite-strings warning flag

Found in: Compiler options

Adds -Wwrite-strings flag for the C/C++ compilers.

For C, this gives string constants the type const char[] so that copying the address of one into a non-const char \* pointer produces a warning. This warning helps to find at compile time code that tries to write into a string constant.

For C++, this warns about the deprecated conversion from string literals to char \*.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_SAVE_RESTORE_LIBCALLS

Enable -msave-restore flag to reduce code size

Found in: Compiler options

Adds -msave-restore to C/C++ compilation flags.

When this flag is enabled, compiler will call library functions to save/restore registers in function prologues/epilogues. This results in lower overall code size, at the expense of slightly reduced performance.

This option can be enabled for RISC-V targets only.

CONFIG_COMPILER_DISABLE_GCC8_WARNINGS

Disable new warnings introduced in GCC 6 - 8

Found in: Compiler options

Enable this option if using GCC 6 or newer, and wanting to disable warnings which don’t appear with GCC 5.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_DUMP_RTL_FILES

Dump RTL files during compilation

Found in: Compiler options

If enabled, RTL files will be produced during compilation. These files can be used by other tools, for example to calculate call graphs.

Theoretically a Provisioner without the limitation of its memory can provision up to 32766 unprovisioned devices, here we limit the maximum number to 100 just to limit the memory used by a Provisioner. The bigger the value is, the more memory it will cost by a Provisioner to store the information of nodes.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PBA_SAME_TIME

Maximum number of PB-ADV running at the same time by Provisioner

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER

Maximum number of application keys that can be owned by Provisioner

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER

This option specifies how many application keys the Provisioner can have. Indeed, this value decides the number of the application keys which can be added by a Provisioner.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER_RECV_HB

Support receiving Heartbeat messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER

When this option is enabled, Provisioner can call specific functions to enable or disable receiving Heartbeat messages and notify them to the application layer.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER_RECV_HB_FILTER_SIZE

Maximum number of filter entries for receiving Heartbeat messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROVISIONER_RECV_HB

This option specifies how many heartbeat filter entries Provisioner supports. The heartbeat filter (acceptlist or rejectlist) entries are used to store a list of SRC and DST which can be used to decide if a heartbeat message will be processed and notified to the application layer by Provisioner. Note: The filter is an empty rejectlist by default.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROV

BLE Mesh Provisioning support

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Enable this option to support BLE Mesh Provisioning functionality. For BLE Mesh, this option should be always enabled.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PB_ADV

Provisioning support using the advertising bearer (PB-ADV)

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Enable this option to allow the device to be provisioned over the advertising bearer. This option should be enabled if PB-ADV is going to be used during provisioning procedure.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_UNPROVISIONED_BEACON_INTERVAL

Interval between two consecutive Unprovisioned Device Beacon

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PB_ADV

This option specifies the interval of sending two consecutive unprovisioned device beacon, users can use this option to change the frequency of sending unprovisioned device beacon. For example, if the value is 5, it means the unprovisioned device beacon will send every 5 seconds. When the option of BLE_MESH_FAST_PROV is selected, the value is better to be 3 seconds, or less.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PB_GATT

Provisioning support using GATT (PB-GATT)

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Enable this option to allow the device to be provisioned over GATT. This option should be enabled if PB-GATT is going to be used during provisioning procedure.

# Virtual option enabled whenever any Proxy protocol is needed

CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROXY

BLE Mesh GATT Proxy Server

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option enables support for Mesh GATT Proxy Service, i.e. the ability to act as a proxy between a Mesh GATT Client and a Mesh network. This option should be enabled if a node is going to be a Proxy Server.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_NODE_ID_TIMEOUT

Node Identity advertising timeout

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_GATT_PROXY_SERVER

This option determines for how long the local node advertises using Node Identity. The given value is in seconds. The specification limits this to 60 seconds and lists it as the recommended value as well. So leaving the default value is the safest option. When an unprovisioned device is provisioned successfully and becomes a node, it will start to advertise using Node Identity during the time set by this option. And after that, Network ID will be advertised.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROXY_FILTER_SIZE

Maximum number of filter entries per Proxy Client

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_GATT_PROXY_SERVER

This option specifies how many Proxy Filter entries the local node supports. The entries of Proxy filter (whitelist or blacklist) are used to store a list of addresses which can be used to decide which messages will be forwarded to the Proxy Client by the Proxy Server.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_GATT_PROXY_CLIENT

BLE Mesh GATT Proxy Client

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option enables support for Mesh GATT Proxy Client. The Proxy Client can use the GATT bearer to send mesh messages to a node that supports the advertising bearer.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

Store BLE Mesh configuration persistently

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

When selected, the BLE Mesh stack will take care of storing/restoring the BLE Mesh configuration persistently in flash. If the device is a BLE Mesh node, when this option is enabled, the configuration of the device will be stored persistently, including unicast address, NetKey, AppKey, etc. And if the device is a BLE Mesh Provisioner, the information of the device will be stored persistently, including the information of provisioned nodes, NetKey, AppKey, etc.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_STORE_TIMEOUT

Delay (in seconds) before storing anything persistently

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This value defines in seconds how soon any pending changes are actually written into persistent storage (flash) after a change occurs. The option allows nodes to delay a certain period of time to save proper information to flash. The default value is 0, which means information will be stored immediately once there are updates.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SEQ_STORE_RATE

How often the sequence number gets updated in storage

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This value defines how often the local sequence number gets updated in persistent storage (i.e. flash). e.g. a value of 100 means that the sequence number will be stored to flash on every 100th increment. If the node sends messages very frequently a higher value makes more sense, whereas if the node sends infrequently a value as low as 0 (update storage for every increment) can make sense. When the stack gets initialized it will add sequence number to the last stored one, so that it starts off with a value that’s guaranteed to be larger than the last one used before power off.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RPL_STORE_TIMEOUT

Minimum frequency that the RPL gets updated in storage

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This value defines in seconds how soon the RPL (Replay Protection List) gets written to persistent storage after a change occurs. If the node receives messages frequently, then a large value is recommended. If the node receives messages rarely, then the value can be as low as 0 (which means the RPL is written into the storage immediately). Note that if the node operates in a security-sensitive case, and there is a risk of sudden power-off, then a value of 0 is strongly recommended. Otherwise, a power loss before RPL being written into the storage may introduce message replay attacks and system security will be in a vulnerable state.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS_BACKWARD_COMPATIBILITY

A specific option for settings backward compatibility

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This option is created to solve the issue of failure in recovering node information after mesh stack updates. In the old version mesh stack, there is no key of “mesh/role” in nvs. In the new version mesh stack, key of “mesh/role” is added in nvs, recovering node information needs to check “mesh/role” key in nvs and implements selective recovery of mesh node information. Therefore, there may be failure in recovering node information during node restarting after OTA.

The new version mesh stack adds the option of “mesh/role” because we have added the support of storing Provisioner information, while the old version only supports storing node information.

If users are updating their nodes from old version to new version, we recommend enabling this option, so that system could set the flag in advance before recovering node information and make sure the node information recovering could work as expected.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SPECIFIC_PARTITION

Use a specific NVS partition for BLE Mesh

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

When selected, the mesh stack will use a specified NVS partition instead of default NVS partition. Note that the specified partition must be registered with NVS using nvs_flash_init_partition() API, and the partition must exists in the csv file. When Provisioner needs to store a large amount of nodes’ information in the flash (e.g. more than 20), this option is recommended to be enabled.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PARTITION_NAME

Name of the NVS partition for BLE Mesh

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SPECIFIC_PARTITION

This value defines the name of the specified NVS partition used by the mesh stack.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_USE_MULTIPLE_NAMESPACE

Support using multiple NVS namespaces by Provisioner

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

When selected, Provisioner can use different NVS namespaces to store different instances of mesh information. For example, if in the first room, Provisioner uses NetKey A, AppKey A and provisions three devices, these information will be treated as mesh information instance A. When the Provisioner moves to the second room, it uses NetKey B, AppKey B and provisions two devices, then the information will be treated as mesh information instance B. Here instance A and instance B will be stored in different namespaces. With this option enabled, Provisioner needs to use specific functions to open the corresponding NVS namespace, restore the mesh information, release the mesh information or erase the mesh information.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MAX_NVS_NAMESPACE

Maximum number of NVS namespaces

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_USE_MULTIPLE_NAMESPACE

This option specifies the maximum NVS namespaces supported by Provisioner.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SUBNET_COUNT

Maximum number of mesh subnets per network

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies how many subnets a Mesh network can have at the same time. Indeed, this value decides the number of the network keys which can be owned by a node.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_APP_KEY_COUNT

Maximum number of application keys per network

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies how many application keys the device can store per network. Indeed, this value decides the number of the application keys which can be owned by a node.

Range:

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies the maximum number of addresses to which each model can be subscribed.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LABEL_COUNT

Maximum number of Label UUIDs used for Virtual Addresses

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies how many Label UUIDs can be stored. Indeed, this value decides the number of the Virtual Addresses can be supported by a node.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_CRPL

Maximum capacity of the replay protection list

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies the maximum capacity of the replay protection list. It is similar to Network message cache size, but has a different purpose. The replay protection list is used to prevent a node from replay attack, which will store the source address and sequence number of the received mesh messages. For Provisioner, the replay protection list size should not be smaller than the maximum number of nodes whose information can be stored. And the element number of each node should also be taken into consideration. For example, if Provisioner can provision up to 20 nodes and each node contains two elements, then the replay protection list size of Provisioner should be at least 40.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MSG_CACHE_SIZE

Network message cache size

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Number of messages that are cached for the network. This helps prevent unnecessary decryption operations and unnecessary relays. This option is similar to Replay protection list, but has a different purpose. A node is not required to cache the entire Network PDU and may cache only part of it for tracking, such as values for SRC/SEQ or others.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_ADV_BUF_COUNT

Number of advertising buffers

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Number of advertising buffers available. The transport layer reserves ADV_BUF_COUNT - 3 buffers for outgoing segments. The maximum outgoing SDU size is 12 times this value (out of which 4 or 8 bytes are used for the Transport Layer MIC). For example, 5 segments means the maximum SDU size is 60 bytes, which leaves 56 bytes for application layer data using a 4-byte MIC, or 52 bytes using an 8-byte MIC.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_IVU_DIVIDER

Divider for IV Update state refresh timer

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

When the IV Update state enters Normal operation or IV Update in Progress, we need to keep track of how many hours has passed in the state, since the specification requires us to remain in the state at least for 96 hours (Update in Progress has an additional upper limit of 144 hours).

In order to fulfill the above requirement, even if the node might be powered off once in a while, we need to store persistently how many hours the node has been in the state. This doesn’t necessarily need to happen every hour (thanks to the flexible duration range). The exact cadence will depend a lot on the ways that the node will be used and what kind of power source it has.

Since there is no single optimal answer, this configuration option allows specifying a divider, i.e. how many intervals the 96 hour minimum gets split into. After each interval the duration that the node has been in the current state gets stored to flash. E.g. the default value of 4 means that the state is saved every 24 hours (96 / 4).

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_TX_SEG_MSG_COUNT

Maximum number of simultaneous outgoing segmented messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum number of simultaneous outgoing multi-segment and/or reliable messages. The default value is 1, which means the device can only send one segmented message at a time. And if another segmented message is going to be sent, it should wait for the completion of the previous one. If users are going to send multiple segmented messages at the same time, this value should be configured properly.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RX_SEG_MSG_COUNT

Maximum number of simultaneous incoming segmented messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum number of simultaneous incoming multi-segment and/or reliable messages. The default value is 1, which means the device can only receive one segmented message at a time. And if another segmented message is going to be received, it should wait for the completion of the previous one. If users are going to receive multiple segmented messages at the same time, this value should be configured properly.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RX_SDU_MAX

Maximum incoming Upper Transport Access PDU length

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum incoming Upper Transport Access PDU length. Leave this to the default value, unless you really need to optimize memory usage.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_TX_SEG_MAX

Maximum number of segments in outgoing messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum number of segments supported for outgoing messages. This value should typically be fine-tuned based on what models the local node supports, i.e. what’s the largest message payload that the node needs to be able to send. This value affects memory and call stack consumption, which is why the default is lower than the maximum that the specification would allow (32 segments).

The maximum outgoing SDU size is 12 times this number (out of which 4 or 8 bytes is used for the Transport Layer MIC). For example, 5 segments means the maximum SDU size is 60 bytes, which leaves 56 bytes for application layer data using a 4-byte MIC and 52 bytes using an 8-byte MIC.

Be sure to specify a sufficient number of advertising buffers when setting this option to a higher value. There must be at least three more advertising buffers (BLE_MESH_ADV_BUF_COUNT) as there are outgoing segments.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RELAY

Relay support

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Support for acting as a Mesh Relay Node. Enabling this option will allow a node to support the Relay feature, and the Relay feature can still be enabled or disabled by proper configuration messages. Disabling this option will let a node not support the Relay feature.

CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_ESTABLISHMENT

Perform Friendship establishment using low power

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

Perform the Friendship establishment using low power with the help of a reduced scan duty cycle. The downside of this is that the node may miss out on messages intended for it until it has successfully set up Friendship with a Friend node. When this option is enabled, the node will stop scanning for a period of time after a Friend Request or Friend Poll is sent, so as to reduce more power consumption.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_AUTO

Automatically start looking for Friend nodes once provisioned

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

Once provisioned, automatically enable LPN functionality and start looking for Friend nodes. If this option is disabled LPN mode needs to be manually enabled by calling bt_mesh_lpn_set(true). When an unprovisioned device is provisioned successfully and becomes a node, enabling this option will trigger the node starts to send Friend Request at a certain period until it finds a proper Friend node.

Default value:

ReceiveWindowFactor, used in Friend Offer Delay calculation

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

The contribution of the supported Receive Window used in Friend Offer Delay calculations. 0 = 1, 1 = 1.5, 2 = 2, 3 = 2.5. ReceiveWindowFactor, one of the parameters carried by Friend Request sent by Low Power node, which is used to calculate the Friend Offer Delay.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_MIN_QUEUE_SIZE

Minimum size of the acceptable friend queue (MinQueueSizeLog)

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

The MinQueueSizeLog field is defined as log_2(N), where N is the minimum number of maximum size Lower Transport PDUs that the Friend node can store in its Friend Queue. As an example, MinQueueSizeLog value 1 gives N = 2, and value 7 gives N = 128.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_RECV_DELAY

Receive delay requested by the local node

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_POLL_TIMEOUT

The value of the PollTimeout timer

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

PollTimeout timer is used to measure time between two consecutive requests sent by a Low Power node. If no requests are received the Friend node before the PollTimeout timer expires, then the friendship is considered terminated. The value is in units of 100 milliseconds, so e.g. a value of 300 means 30 seconds. The smaller the value, the faster the Low Power node tries to get messages from corresponding Friend node and vice versa.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_INIT_POLL_TIMEOUT

The starting value of the PollTimeout timer

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

The initial value of the PollTimeout timer when Friendship is to be established for the first time. After this, the timeout gradually grows toward the actual PollTimeout, doubling in value for each iteration. The value is in units of 100 milliseconds, so e.g. a value of 300 means 30 seconds.

  • If only high-resolution timer (systimer) is used, gettimeofday will provide time at microsecond resolution. Time will not be preserved when going into deep sleep mode.

  • If only RTC timer is used, timekeeping will continue in deep sleep, but time will be measured at 6.(6) microsecond resolution. Also the gettimeofday function itself may take longer to run.

  • If no timers are used, gettimeofday and time functions return -1 and set errno to ENOSYS.

  • When RTC is used for timekeeping, two RTC_STORE registers are used to keep time in deep sleep mode.

Available options:
  • RTC and high-resolution timer (ESP32C3_TIME_SYSCALL_USE_RTC_SYSTIMER)

  • RTC (ESP32C3_TIME_SYSCALL_USE_RTC)

Found in: Component config > ESP32C3-Specific

When the startup code initializes RTC_SLOW_CLK, it can perform calibration by comparing the RTC_SLOW_CLK frequency with main XTAL frequency. This option sets the number of RTC_SLOW_CLK cycles measured by the calibration routine. Higher numbers increase calibration precision, which may be important for applications which spend a lot of time in deep sleep. Lower numbers reduce startup time.

When this option is set to 0, clock calibration will not be performed at startup, and approximate clock frequencies will be assumed:

  • 150000 Hz if internal RC oscillator is used as clock source. For this use value 1024.

  • 32768 Hz if the 32k crystal oscillator is used. For this use value 3000 or more. In case more value will help improve the definition of the launch of the crystal. If the crystal could not start, it will be switched to internal RC.

Range:
  • from 0 to 27000 if ESP32C3_RTC_CLK_SRC_EXT_CRYS || ESP32C3_RTC_CLK_SRC_EXT_OSC || ESP32C3_RTC_CLK_SRC_INT_8MD256

MAC Config

Contains:

CONFIG_ESP32C3_UNIVERSAL_MAC_ADDRESSES

Number of universally administered (by IEEE) MAC address

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > MAC Config

Configure the number of universally administered (by IEEE) MAC addresses.

During initialization, MAC addresses for each network interface are generated or derived from a single base MAC address.

If the number of universal MAC addresses is four, all four interfaces (WiFi station, WiFi softap, Bluetooth and Ethernet) receive a universally administered MAC address. These are generated sequentially by adding 0, 1, 2 and 3 (respectively) to the final octet of the base MAC address.

If the number of universal MAC addresses is two, only two interfaces (WiFi station and Bluetooth) receive a universally administered MAC address. These are generated sequentially by adding 0 and 1 (respectively) to the base MAC address. The remaining two interfaces (WiFi softap and Ethernet) receive local MAC addresses. These are derived from the universal WiFi station and Bluetooth MAC addresses, respectively.

When using the default (Espressif-assigned) base MAC address, either setting can be used. When using a custom universal MAC address range, the correct setting will depend on the allocation of MAC addresses in this range (either 2 or 4 per device.)

Note that ESP32-C3 has no integrated Ethernet MAC. Although it’s possible to use the esp_read_mac() API to return a MAC for Ethernet, this can only be used with an external MAC peripheral.

Available options:
  • Two (ESP32C3_UNIVERSAL_MAC_ADDRESSES_TWO)

  • Four (ESP32C3_UNIVERSAL_MAC_ADDRESSES_FOUR)

CONFIG_PM_PROFILING

Enable profiling counters for PM locks

Found in: Component config > Power Management > CONFIG_PM_ENABLE

If enabled, esp_pm_* functions will keep track of the amount of time each of the power management locks has been held, and esp_pm_dump_locks function will print this information. This feature can be used to analyze which locks are preventing the chip from going into a lower power state, and see what time the chip spends in each power saving mode. This feature does incur some run-time overhead, so should typically be disabled in production builds.

Default value:
CONFIG_PM_TRACE

Enable debug tracing of PM using GPIOs

Found in: Component config > Power Management > CONFIG_PM_ENABLE

If enabled, some GPIOs will be used to signal events such as RTOS ticks, frequency switching, entry/exit from idle state. Refer to pm_trace.c file for the list of GPIOs. This feature is intended to be used when analyzing/debugging behavior of power management implementation, and should be kept disabled in applications.

Default value:
CONFIG_PM_SLP_IRAM_OPT

Put lightsleep related codes in internal RAM

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, about 1.8KB of lightsleep related source code would be in IRAM and chip would sleep longer for 760us at most each time. This feature is intended to be used when lower power consumption is needed while there is enough place in IRAM to place source code.

CONFIG_PM_RTOS_IDLE_OPT

Put RTOS IDLE related codes in internal RAM

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, about 260B of RTOS_IDLE related source code would be in IRAM and chip would sleep longer for 40us at most each time. This feature is intended to be used when lower power consumption is needed while there is enough place in IRAM to place source code.

CONFIG_PM_SLP_DISABLE_GPIO

Disable all GPIO when chip at sleep

Found in: Component config > Power Management

This feature is intended to disable all GPIO pins at automantic sleep to get a lower power mode. If enabled, chips will disable all GPIO pins at automantic sleep to reduce about 200~300 uA current. If you want to specifically use some pins normally as chip wakes when chip sleeps, you can call ‘gpio_sleep_sel_dis’ to disable this feature on those pins. You can also keep this feature on and call ‘gpio_sleep_set_direction’ and ‘gpio_sleep_set_pull_mode’ to have a different GPIO configuration at sleep. Waring: If you want to enable this option on ESP32, you should enable GPIO_ESP32_SUPPORT_SWITCH_SLP_PULL at first, otherwise you will not be able to switch pullup/pulldown mode.

CONFIG_PM_POWER_DOWN_CPU_IN_LIGHT_SLEEP

Power down CPU in light sleep

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, the CPU will be powered down in light sleep. On esp32c3 soc, enabling this option will consume 1.68 KB of internal RAM and will reduce sleep current consumption by about 100 uA.

Panic handler behaviour

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

If FreeRTOS detects unexpected behaviour or an unhandled exception, the panic handler is invoked. Configure the panic handler’s action here.

Available options:
  • Print registers and halt (ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_PRINT_HALT)

    Outputs the relevant registers over the serial port and halt the processor. Needs a manual reset to restart.

  • Print registers and reboot (ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_PRINT_REBOOT)

    Outputs the relevant registers over the serial port and immediately reset the processor.

  • Silent reboot (ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_SILENT_REBOOT)

    Just resets the processor without outputting anything

  • GDBStub on panic (ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_GDBSTUB)

    Invoke gdbstub on the serial port, allowing for gdb to attach to it to do a postmortem of the crash.

  • GDBStub at runtime (ESP_SYSTEM_GDBSTUB_RUNTIME)

    Invoke gdbstub on the serial port, allowing for gdb to attach to it and to do a debug on runtime. This feature will switch system to single core mode.

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_RTC_EXT_XTAL_BOOTSTRAP_CYCLES

Bootstrap cycles for external 32kHz crystal

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

To reduce the startup time of an external RTC crystal, we bootstrap it with a 32kHz square wave for a fixed number of cycles. Setting 0 will disable bootstrapping (if disabled, the crystal may take longer to start up or fail to oscillate under some conditions).

If this value is too high, a faulty crystal may initially start and then fail. If this value is too low, an otherwise good crystal may not start.

To accurately determine if the crystal has started, set a larger “Number of cycles for RTC_SLOW_CLK calibration” (about 3000).

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_ALLOW_RTC_FAST_MEM_AS_HEAP

Enable RTC fast memory for dynamic allocations

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This config option allows to add RTC fast memory region to system heap with capability similar to that of DRAM region but without DMA. This memory will be consumed first per heap initialization order by early startup services and scheduler related code. Speed wise RTC fast memory operates on APB clock and hence does not have much performance impact.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_USE_EH_FRAME

Generate and use eh_frame for backtracing

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

Generate DWARF information for each function of the project. These information will parsed and used to perform backtracing when panics occur.

  • 115200

CONFIG_ESP_INT_WDT

Interrupt watchdog

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This watchdog timer can detect if the FreeRTOS tick interrupt has not been called for a certain time, either because a task turned off interrupts and did not turn them on for a long time, or because an interrupt handler did not return. It will try to invoke the panic handler first and failing that reset the SoC.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_INT_WDT_TIMEOUT_MS

Interrupt watchdog timeout (ms)

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_INT_WDT

The timeout of the watchdog, in miliseconds. Make this higher than the FreeRTOS tick rate.

CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_CHECK_IDLE_TASK_CPU0

Watch CPU0 Idle Task

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT

If this option is enabled, the Task Watchdog Timer will watch the CPU0 Idle Task. Having the Task Watchdog watch the Idle Task allows for detection of CPU starvation as the Idle Task not being called is usually a symptom of CPU starvation. Starvation of the Idle Task is detrimental as FreeRTOS household tasks depend on the Idle Task getting some runtime every now and then.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_CHECK_IDLE_TASK_CPU1

Watch CPU1 Idle Task

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_XT_WDT

Enable this to automatically switch to BACKUP32K_CLK as the source of RTC_SLOW_CLK when the watchdog timer expires.

Default value:
CONFIG_ESP_PANIC_HANDLER_IRAM

Place panic handler code in IRAM

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

If this option is disabled (default), the panic handler code is placed in flash not IRAM. This means that if ESP-IDF crashes while flash cache is disabled, the panic handler will automatically re-enable flash cache before running GDB Stub or Core Dump. This adds some minor risk, if the flash cache status is also corrupted during the crash.

If this option is enabled, the panic handler code (including required UART functions) is placed in IRAM. This may be necessary to debug some complex issues with crashes while flash cache is disabled (for example, when writing to SPI flash) or when flash cache is corrupted when an exception is triggered.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_CHECK_INT_LEVEL

CONFIG_ESP32_WIFI_DYNAMIC_RX_BUFFER_NUM

Max number of WiFi dynamic RX buffers

Found in: Component config > Wi-Fi

Set the number of WiFi dynamic RX buffers, 0 means unlimited RX buffers will be allocated (provided sufficient free RAM). The size of each dynamic RX buffer depends on the size of the received data frame.

For each received data frame, the WiFi driver makes a copy to an RX buffer and then delivers it to the high layer TCP/IP stack. The dynamic RX buffer is freed after the higher layer has successfully received the data frame.

For some applications, WiFi data frames may be received faster than the application can process them. In these cases we may run out of memory if RX buffer number is unlimited (0).

If a dynamic RX buffer limit is set, it should be at least the number of static RX buffers.

CONFIG_ESP32_WIFI_SOFTAP_BEACON_MAX_LEN

Max length of WiFi SoftAP Beacon

Found in: Component config > Wi-Fi

ESP-MESH utilizes beacon frames to detect and resolve root node conflicts (see documentation). However the default length of a beacon frame can simultaneously hold only five root node identifier structures, meaning that a root node conflict of up to five nodes can be detected at one time. In the occurence of more root nodes conflict involving more than five root nodes, the conflict resolution process will detect five of the root nodes, resolve the conflict, and re-detect more root nodes. This process will repeat until all root node conflicts are resolved. However this process can generally take a very long time.

To counter this situation, the beacon frame length can be increased such that more root nodes can be detected simultaneously. Each additional root node will require 36 bytes and should be added ontop of the default beacon frame length of 752 bytes. For example, if you want to detect 10 root nodes simultaneously, you need to set the beacon frame length as 932 (752+36*5).

Setting a longer beacon length also assists with debugging as the conflicting root nodes can be identified more quickly.

Range:

Range:
  • from 0 to 200

Default value:
  • 20

CONFIG_FMB_CONTROLLER_STACK_SIZE

Modbus controller stack size

Found in: Component config > Modbus configuration

Modbus controller task stack size. The Stack size may be adjusted when debug mode is used which requires more stack size (for example).

Range:
  • from 0 to 8192

Default value:
  • 4096

CONFIG_FMB_EVENT_QUEUE_TIMEOUT

Modbus stack event queue timeout (ms)

Found in: Component config > Modbus configuration

Modbus stack event queue timeout in milliseconds. This may help to optimize Modbus stack event processing time.

Range:
  • from 0 to 500

Default value:
  • 20

CONFIG_FMB_TIMER_PORT_ENABLED

Modbus stack use timer for 3.5T symbol time measurement

Found in: Component config > Modbus configuration

If this option is set the Modbus stack uses timer for T3.5 time measurement. Else the internal UART TOUT timeout is used for 3.5T symbol time measurement.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FMB_TIMER_GROUP

Slave Timer group number

CONFIG_FMB_TIMER_ISR_IN_IRAM

Place timer interrupt handler into IRAM

Found in: Component config > Modbus configuration

This option places Modbus timer IRQ handler into IRAM. This allows to avoid delays related to processing of non-IRAM-safe interrupts during a flash write operation (NVS updating a value, or some other flash API which has to perform an read/write operation and disable CPU cache). This option has dependency with the UART_ISR_IN_IRAM option which places UART interrupt handler into IRAM to prevent delays related to processing of UART events.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

FreeRTOS

Contains:

CONFIG_FREERTOS_UNICORE

Run FreeRTOS only on first core

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

This version of FreeRTOS normally takes control of all cores of the CPU. Select this if you only want to start it on the first core. This is needed when e.g. another process needs complete control over the second core.

# This invisible config value sets the value of tskNO_AFFINITY in task.h. # Intended to be used as a constant from other Kconfig files. # Value is (32-bit) INT_MAX.

CONFIG_FREERTOS_CORETIMER

Xtensa timer to use as the FreeRTOS tick source

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS needs a timer with an associated interrupt to use as the main tick source to increase counters, run timers and do pre-emptive multitasking with. There are multiple timers available to do this, with different interrupt priorities. Check

Available options:
  • Timer 0 (int 6, level 1) (FREERTOS_CORETIMER_0)

    Select this to use timer 0

  • Timer 1 (int 15, level 3) (FREERTOS_CORETIMER_1)

    Select this to use timer 1

  • SYSTIMER 0 (level 1) (FREERTOS_CORETIMER_SYSTIMER_LVL1)

    Select this to use systimer with the 1 interrupt priority.

  • SYSTIMER 0 (level 3) (FREERTOS_CORETIMER_SYSTIMER_LVL3)

    Select this to use systimer with the 3 interrupt priority.

CONFIG_FREERTOS_OPTIMIZED_SCHEDULER

Enable FreeRTOS pĺatform optimized scheduler

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

On most platforms there are instructions can speedup the ready task searching. Enabling this option the FreeRTOS with this instructions support will be built.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_HZ

Tick rate (Hz)

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

Select the tick rate at which FreeRTOS does pre-emptive context switching.

Range:
  • from 1 to 1000

Default value:
  • 100

CONFIG_FREERTOS_ASSERT_ON_UNTESTED_FUNCTION

Halt when an SMP-untested function is called

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

Some functions in FreeRTOS have not been thoroughly tested yet when moving to the SMP implementation of FreeRTOS. When this option is enabled, these fuctions will throw an assert().

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_CHECK_STACKOVERFLOW

Check for stack overflow

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS can check for stack overflows in threads and trigger an user function called vApplicationStackOverflowHook when this happens.

Available options:
  • No checking (FREERTOS_CHECK_STACKOVERFLOW_NONE)

    Do not check for stack overflows (configCHECK_FOR_STACK_OVERFLOW=0)

  • Check by stack pointer value (FREERTOS_CHECK_STACKOVERFLOW_PTRVAL)

    Check for stack overflows on each context switch by checking if the stack pointer is in a valid range. Quick but does not detect stack overflows that happened between context switches (configCHECK_FOR_STACK_OVERFLOW=1)

  • Check using canary bytes (FREERTOS_CHECK_STACKOVERFLOW_CANARY)

    Places some magic bytes at the end of the stack area and on each context switch, check if these bytes are still intact. More thorough than just checking the pointer, but also slightly slower. (configCHECK_FOR_STACK_OVERFLOW=2)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_WATCHPOINT_END_OF_STACK

Set a debug watchpoint as a stack overflow check

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS can check if a stack has overflown its bounds by checking either the value of the stack pointer or by checking the integrity of canary bytes. (See FREERTOS_CHECK_STACKOVERFLOW for more information.) These checks only happen on a context switch, and the situation that caused the stack overflow may already be long gone by then. This option will use the last debug memory watchpoint to allow breaking into the debugger (or panic’ing) as soon as any of the last 32 bytes on the stack of a task are overwritten. The side effect is that using gdb, you effectively have one hardware watchpoint less because the last one is overwritten as soon as a task switch happens.

Another consequence is that due to alignment requirements of the watchpoint, the usable stack size decreases by up to 60 bytes. This is because the watchpoint region has to be aligned to its size and the size for the stack watchpoint in IDF is 32 bytes.

This check only triggers if the stack overflow writes within 32 bytes near the end of the stack, rather than overshooting further, so it is worth combining this approach with one of the other stack overflow check methods.

When this watchpoint is hit, gdb will stop with a SIGTRAP message. When no JTAG OCD is attached, esp-idf will panic on an unhandled debug exception.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_INTERRUPT_BACKTRACE

Enable backtrace from interrupt to task context

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If this option is enabled, interrupt stack frame will be modified to point to the code of the interrupted task as its return address. This helps the debugger (or the panic handler) show a backtrace from the interrupt to the task which was interrupted. This also works for nested interrupts: higer level interrupt stack can be traced back to the lower level interrupt. This option adds 4 instructions to the interrupt dispatching code.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_THREAD_LOCAL_STORAGE_POINTERS

Number of thread local storage pointers

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS has the ability to store per-thread pointers in the task control block. This controls the number of pointers available.

This value must be at least 1. Index 0 is reserved for use by the pthreads API thread-local-storage. Other indexes can be used for any desired purpose.

Range:
  • from 1 to 256

Default value:
  • 1

CONFIG_FREERTOS_ASSERT

FreeRTOS assertions

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

Failed FreeRTOS configASSERT() assertions can be configured to behave in different ways.

By default these behave the same as the global project assert settings.

Available options:
  • abort() on failed assertions (FREERTOS_ASSERT_FAIL_ABORT)

    If a FreeRTOS configASSERT() fails, FreeRTOS will abort() and halt execution. The panic handler can be configured to handle the outcome of an abort() in different ways.

    If assertions are disabled for the entire project, they are also disabled in FreeRTOS and this option is unavailable.

  • Print and continue failed assertions (FREERTOS_ASSERT_FAIL_PRINT_CONTINUE)

    If a FreeRTOS assertion fails, print it out and continue.

  • Disable FreeRTOS assertions (FREERTOS_ASSERT_DISABLE)

    FreeRTOS configASSERT() will not be compiled into the binary.

CONFIG_FREERTOS_IDLE_TASK_STACKSIZE

Idle Task stack size

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

The idle task has its own stack, sized in bytes. The default size is enough for most uses. Size can be reduced to 768 bytes if no (or simple) FreeRTOS idle hooks are used and pthread local storage or FreeRTOS local storage cleanup callbacks are not used.

The stack size may need to be increased above the default if the app installs idle or thread local storage cleanup hooks that use a lot of stack memory.

Range:
  • from 768 to 32768

Default value:
  • 1536

CONFIG_FREERTOS_ISR_STACKSIZE

ISR stack size

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

The interrupt handlers have their own stack. The size of the stack can be defined here. Each processor has its own stack, so the total size occupied will be twice this.

Range:
  • from 2096 to 32768 if ESP_COREDUMP_DATA_FORMAT_ELF

  • from 1536 to 32768

Default value:
  • 2096 if ESP_COREDUMP_DATA_FORMAT_ELF

  • 1536

CONFIG_FREERTOS_LEGACY_HOOKS

Use FreeRTOS legacy hooks

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS offers a number of hooks/callback functions that are called when a timer tick happens, the idle thread runs etc. esp-idf replaces these by runtime registerable hooks using the esp_register_freertos_xxx_hook system, but for legacy reasons the old hooks can also still be enabled. Please enable this only if you have code that for some reason can’t be migrated to the esp_register_freertos_xxx_hook system.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_MAX_TASK_NAME_LEN

Maximum task name length

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

Changes the maximum task name length. Each task allocated will include this many bytes for a task name. Using a shorter value saves a small amount of RAM, a longer value allows more complex names.

For most uses, the default of 16 is OK.

Range:
  • from 1 to 256

Default value:
  • 16

CONFIG_FREERTOS_ENABLE_STATIC_TASK_CLEAN_UP

Enable static task clean up hook

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

Enable this option to make FreeRTOS call the static task clean up hook when a task is deleted.

Bear in mind that if this option is enabled you will need to implement the following function:

void vPortCleanUpTCB ( void \*pxTCB ) {
    // place clean up code here
}
Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_TIMER_TASK_PRIORITY

FreeRTOS timer task priority

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

The timer service task (primarily) makes use of existing FreeRTOS features, allowing timer functionality to be added to an application with minimal impact on the size of the application’s executable binary.

Use this constant to define the priority that the timer task will run at.

Range:
  • from 1 to 25

Default value:
  • 1

CONFIG_FREERTOS_TIMER_TASK_STACK_DEPTH

FreeRTOS timer task stack size

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

The timer service task (primarily) makes use of existing FreeRTOS features, allowing timer functionality to be added to an application with minimal impact on the size of the application’s executable binary.

Use this constant to define the size (in bytes) of the stack allocated for the timer task.

Range:
  • from 1536 to 32768

Default value:
  • 2048

CONFIG_FREERTOS_TIMER_QUEUE_LENGTH

FreeRTOS timer queue length

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS provides a set of timer related API functions. Many of these functions use a standard FreeRTOS queue to send commands to the timer service task. The queue used for this purpose is called the ‘timer command queue’. The ‘timer command queue’ is private to the FreeRTOS timer implementation, and cannot be accessed directly.

For most uses the default value of 10 is OK.

Range:
  • from 5 to 20

Default value:
  • 10

CONFIG_FREERTOS_QUEUE_REGISTRY_SIZE

FreeRTOS queue registry size

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS uses the queue registry as a means for kernel aware debuggers to locate queues, semaphores, and mutexes. The registry allows for a textual name to be associated with a queue for easy identification within a debugging GUI. A value of 0 will disable queue registry functionality, and a value larger than 0 will specify the number of queues/semaphores/mutexes that the registry can hold.

Range:
  • from 0 to 20

Default value:
  • 0

CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_TRACE_FACILITY

Enable FreeRTOS trace facility

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If enabled, configUSE_TRACE_FACILITY will be defined as 1 in FreeRTOS. This will allow the usage of trace facility functions such as uxTaskGetSystemState().

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_STATS_FORMATTING_FUNCTIONS

Enable FreeRTOS stats formatting functions

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS > CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_TRACE_FACILITY

If enabled, configUSE_STATS_FORMATTING_FUNCTIONS will be defined as 1 in FreeRTOS. This will allow the usage of stats formatting functions such as vTaskList().

Default value:
CONFIG_FREERTOS_VTASKLIST_INCLUDE_COREID

Enable display of xCoreID in vTaskList

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS > CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_TRACE_FACILITY > CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_STATS_FORMATTING_FUNCTIONS

If enabled, this will include an extra column when vTaskList is called to display the CoreID the task is pinned to (0,1) or -1 if not pinned.

Default value:
CONFIG_FREERTOS_GENERATE_RUN_TIME_STATS

Enable FreeRTOS to collect run time stats

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If enabled, configGENERATE_RUN_TIME_STATS will be defined as 1 in FreeRTOS. This will allow FreeRTOS to collect information regarding the usage of processor time amongst FreeRTOS tasks. Run time stats are generated using either the ESP Timer or the CPU Clock as the clock source (Note that run time stats are only valid until the clock source overflows). The function vTaskGetRunTimeStats() will also be available if FREERTOS_USE_STATS_FORMATTING_FUNCTIONS and FREERTOS_USE_TRACE_FACILITY are enabled. vTaskGetRunTimeStats() will display the run time of each task as a % of the total run time of all CPUs (task run time / no of CPUs) / (total run time / 100 )

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_RUN_TIME_STATS_CLK

Choose the clock source for run time stats

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS > CONFIG_FREERTOS_GENERATE_RUN_TIME_STATS

Choose the clock source for FreeRTOS run time stats. Options are CPU0’s CPU Clock or the ESP Timer. Both clock sources are 32 bits. The CPU Clock can run at a higher frequency hence provide a finer resolution but will overflow much quicker. Note that run time stats are only valid until the clock source overflows.

Available options:
  • Use ESP TIMER for run time stats (FREERTOS_RUN_TIME_STATS_USING_ESP_TIMER)

    ESP Timer will be used as the clock source for FreeRTOS run time stats. The ESP Timer runs at a frequency of 1MHz regardless of Dynamic Frequency Scaling. Therefore the ESP Timer will overflow in approximately 4290 seconds.

  • Use CPU Clock for run time stats (FREERTOS_RUN_TIME_STATS_USING_CPU_CLK)

    CPU Clock will be used as the clock source for the generation of run time stats. The CPU Clock has a frequency dependent on ESP32_DEFAULT_CPU_FREQ_MHZ and Dynamic Frequency Scaling (DFS). Therefore the CPU Clock frequency can fluctuate between 80 to 240MHz. Run time stats generated using the CPU Clock represents the number of CPU cycles each task is allocated and DOES NOT reflect the amount of time each task runs for (as CPU clock frequency can change). If the CPU clock consistently runs at the maximum frequency of 240MHz, it will overflow in approximately 17 seconds.

CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_TICKLESS_IDLE

Tickless idle support

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If power management support is enabled, FreeRTOS will be able to put the system into light sleep mode when no tasks need to run for a number of ticks. This number can be set using FREERTOS_IDLE_TIME_BEFORE_SLEEP option. This feature is also known as “automatic light sleep”.

Note that timers created using esp_timer APIs may prevent the system from entering sleep mode, even when no tasks need to run. To skip unnecessary wake-up initialize a timer with the “skip_unhandled_events” option as true.

If disabled, automatic light sleep support will be disabled.

Default value:
CONFIG_FREERTOS_IDLE_TIME_BEFORE_SLEEP

Minimum number of ticks to enter sleep mode for

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS > CONFIG_FREERTOS_USE_TICKLESS_IDLE

FreeRTOS will enter light sleep mode if no tasks need to run for this number of ticks.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_FREERTOS_TASK_FUNCTION_WRAPPER

Enclose all task functions in a wrapper function

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If enabled, all FreeRTOS task functions will be enclosed in a wrapper function. If a task function mistakenly returns (i.e. does not delete), the call flow will return to the wrapper function. The wrapper function will then log an error and abort the application. This option is also required for GDB backtraces and C++ exceptions to work correctly inside top-level task functions.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_CHECK_MUTEX_GIVEN_BY_OWNER

Check that mutex semaphore is given by owner task

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If enabled, assert that when a mutex semaphore is given, the task giving the semaphore is the task which is currently holding the mutex.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_CHECK_PORT_CRITICAL_COMPLIANCE

Tests compliance with Vanilla FreeRTOS port*_CRITICAL calls

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

If enabled, context of port*_CRITICAL calls (ISR or Non-ISR) would be checked to be in compliance with Vanilla FreeRTOS. e.g Calling port*_CRITICAL from ISR context would cause assert failure

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_PLACE_FUNCTIONS_INTO_FLASH

Place FreeRTOS functions into Flash

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

When enabled the selected Non-ISR FreeRTOS functions will be placed into Flash memory instead of IRAM. This saves up to 8KB of IRAM depending on which functions are used.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_ENABLE_TASK_SNAPSHOT

Enable task snapshot functions

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS

When enabled, the functions related to snapshots, such as vTaskGetSnapshot or uxTaskGetSnapshotAll, are compiled and linked.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_FREERTOS_PLACE_SNAPSHOT_FUNS_INTO_FLASH

Place task snapshot functions into flash

Found in: Component config > FreeRTOS > CONFIG_FREERTOS_ENABLE_TASK_SNAPSHOT

When enabled, the functions related to snapshots, such as vTaskGetSnapshot or uxTaskGetSnapshotAll, will be placed in flash. Note that if enabled, these functions cannot be called when cache is disabled.

Default value:

Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and Low Level (LL)

Contains:

CONFIG_HAL_DEFAULT_ASSERTION_LEVEL

Default HAL assertion level

Found in: Component config > Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and Low Level (LL)

Set the assert behavior / level for HAL component. HAL component assert level can be set separately, but the level can’t exceed the system assertion level. e.g. If the system assertion is disabled, then the HAL assertion can’t be enabled either. If the system assertion is enable, then the HAL assertion can still be disabled by this Kconfig option.

Available options:
  • Same as system assertion level (HAL_ASSERTION_EQUALS_SYSTEM)

  • Disabled (HAL_ASSERTION_DISABLE)

  • Silent (HAL_ASSERTION_SILIENT)

  • Enabled (HAL_ASSERTION_ENABLE)

Heap memory debugging

Contains:

CONFIG_HEAP_CORRUPTION_DETECTION

Heap corruption detection

Found in: Component config > Heap memory debugging

Enable heap poisoning features to detect heap corruption caused by out-of-bounds access to heap memory.

See the “Heap Memory Debugging” page of the IDF documentation for a description of each level of heap corruption detection.

Available options:
  • Basic (no poisoning) (HEAP_POISONING_DISABLED)

  • Light impact (HEAP_POISONING_LIGHT)

  • Comprehensive (HEAP_POISONING_COMPREHENSIVE)

CONFIG_HEAP_TRACING_DEST

Heap tracing

Found in: Component config > Heap memory debugging

Enables the heap tracing API defined in esp_heap_trace.h.

This function causes a moderate increase in IRAM code side and a minor increase in heap function (malloc/free/realloc) CPU overhead, even when the tracing feature is not used. So it’s best to keep it disabled unless tracing is being used.

Available options:
  • Disabled (HEAP_TRACING_OFF)

  • Standalone (HEAP_TRACING_STANDALONE)

  • Host-based (HEAP_TRACING_TOHOST)

CONFIG_HEAP_TRACING_STACK_DEPTH

Heap tracing stack depth

Found in: Component config > Heap memory debugging

Number of stack frames to save when tracing heap operation callers.

More stack frames uses more memory in the heap trace buffer (and slows down allocation), but can provide useful information.

CONFIG_HEAP_TASK_TRACKING

Enable heap task tracking

Found in: Component config > Heap memory debugging

Enables tracking the task responsible for each heap allocation.

This function depends on heap poisoning being enabled and adds four more bytes of overhead for each block allocated.

CONFIG_HEAP_ABORT_WHEN_ALLOCATION_FAILS

Abort if memory allocation fails

Found in: Component config > Heap memory debugging

When enabled, if a memory allocation operation fails it will cause a system abort.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

jsmn

Contains:

CONFIG_JSMN_STRICT

Enable strict mode

Found in: Component config > jsmn

In strict mode primitives are: numbers and booleans

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

libsodium

Contains:

CONFIG_LIBSODIUM_USE_MBEDTLS_SHA

Use mbedTLS SHA256 & SHA512 implementations

Found in: Component config > libsodium

If this option is enabled, libsodium will use thin wrappers around mbedTLS for SHA256 & SHA512 operations.

This saves some code size if mbedTLS is also used. However it is incompatible with hardware SHA acceleration (due to the way libsodium’s API manages SHA state).

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

Log output

Contains:

CONFIG_LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL

Default log verbosity

Found in: Component config > Log output

Specify how much output to see in logs by default. You can set lower verbosity level at runtime using esp_log_level_set function.

By default, this setting limits which log statements are compiled into the program. For example, selecting “Warning” would mean that changing log level to “Debug” at runtime will not be possible. To allow increasing log level above the default at runtime, see the next option.

Available options:
  • No output (LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL_NONE)

  • Error (LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL_ERROR)

  • Warning (LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL_WARN)

  • Info (LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL_INFO)

  • Debug (LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL_DEBUG)

  • Verbose (LOG_DEFAULT_LEVEL_VERBOSE)

CONFIG_LOG_MAXIMUM_LEVEL

Maximum log verbosity

Found in: Component config > Log output

This config option sets the highest log verbosity that it’s possible to select at runtime by calling esp_log_level_set(). This level may be higher than the default verbosity level which is set when the app starts up.

This can be used enable debugging output only at a critical point, for a particular tag, or to minimize startup time but then enable more logs once the firmware has loaded.

Note that increasing the maximum available log level will increase the firmware binary size.

This option only applies to logging from the app, the bootloader log level is fixed at compile time to the separate “Bootloader log verbosity” setting.

Available options:
  • Same as default (LOG_MAXIMUM_EQUALS_DEFAULT)

  • Error (LOG_MAXIMUM_LEVEL_ERROR)

  • Warning (LOG_MAXIMUM_LEVEL_WARN)

  • Info (LOG_MAXIMUM_LEVEL_INFO)

  • Debug (LOG_MAXIMUM_LEVEL_DEBUG)

  • Verbose (LOG_MAXIMUM_LEVEL_VERBOSE)

CONFIG_LOG_COLORS

Use ANSI terminal colors in log output

Found in: Component config > Log output

Enable ANSI terminal color codes in bootloader output.

In order to view these, your terminal program must support ANSI color codes.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_LOG_TIMESTAMP_SOURCE

Log Timestamps

Found in: Component config > Log output

Choose what sort of timestamp is displayed in the log output:

  • Milliseconds since boot is calulated from the RTOS tick count multiplied by the tick period. This time will reset after a software reboot. e.g. (90000)

  • System time is taken from POSIX time functions which use the ESP32’s RTC and FRC1 timers to maintain an accurate time. The system time is initialized to 0 on startup, it can be set with an SNTP sync, or with POSIX time functions. This time will not reset after a software reboot. e.g. (00:01:30.000)

  • NOTE: Currently this will not get used in logging from binary blobs (i.e WiFi & Bluetooth libraries), these will always print milliseconds since boot.

Available options:
  • Milliseconds Since Boot (LOG_TIMESTAMP_SOURCE_RTOS)

  • System Time (LOG_TIMESTAMP_SOURCE_SYSTEM)

LWIP

Contains:

CONFIG_LWIP_LOCAL_HOSTNAME

Local netif hostname

Found in: Component config > LWIP

The default name this device will report to other devices on the network. Could be updated at runtime with esp_netif_set_hostname()

Default value:
  • “espressif”

CONFIG_LWIP_NETIF_API

Enable usage of standard POSIX APIs in LWIP

Found in: Component config > LWIP

If this feature is enabled, standard POSIX APIs: if_indextoname(), if_nametoindex() could be used to convert network interface index to name instead of IDF specific esp-netif APIs (such as esp_netif_get_netif_impl_name())

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_TCPIP_CORE_LOCKING

Enable tcpip core locking

Found in: Component config > LWIP

If Enable tcpip core locking,Creates a global mutex that is held during TCPIP thread operations.Can be locked by client code to perform lwIP operations without changing into TCPIP thread using callbacks. See LOCK_TCPIP_CORE() and UNLOCK_TCPIP_CORE().

If disable tcpip core locking,TCP IP will perform tasks through context switching.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_DNS_SUPPORT_MDNS_QUERIES

Enable mDNS queries in resolving host name

Found in: Component config > LWIP

If this feature is enabled, standard API such as gethostbyname support .local addresses by sending one shot multicast mDNS query

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_L2_TO_L3_COPY

Enable copy between Layer2 and Layer3 packets

Found in: Component config > LWIP

If this feature is enabled, all traffic from layer2(WIFI Driver) will be copied to a new buffer before sending it to layer3(LWIP stack), freeing the layer2 buffer. Please be notified that the total layer2 receiving buffer is fixed and ESP32 currently supports 25 layer2 receiving buffer, when layer2 buffer runs out of memory, then the incoming packets will be dropped in hardware. The layer3 buffer is allocated from the heap, so the total layer3 receiving buffer depends on the available heap size, when heap runs out of memory, no copy will be sent to layer3 and packet will be dropped in layer2. Please make sure you fully understand the impact of this feature before enabling it.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_IRAM_OPTIMIZATION

Enable LWIP IRAM optimization

Found in: Component config > LWIP

If this feature is enabled, some functions relating to RX/TX in LWIP will be put into IRAM, it can improve UDP/TCP throughput by >10% for single core mode, it doesn’t help too much for dual core mode. On the other hand, it needs about 10KB IRAM for these optimizations.

If this feature is disabled, all lwip functions will be put into FLASH.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_TIMERS_ONDEMAND

Enable LWIP Timers on demand

Found in: Component config > LWIP

If this feature is enabled, IGMP and MLD6 timers will be activated only when joining groups or receiving QUERY packets.

This feature will reduce the power consumption for applications which do not use IGMP and MLD6.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_MAX_SOCKETS

Max number of open sockets

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Sockets take up a certain amount of memory, and allowing fewer sockets to be open at the same time conserves memory. Specify the maximum amount of sockets here. The valid value is from 1 to 16.

Range:
  • from 1 to 16

Default value:
  • 10

CONFIG_LWIP_USE_ONLY_LWIP_SELECT

Support LWIP socket select() only (DEPRECATED)

Found in: Component config > LWIP

This option is deprecated. Use VFS_SUPPORT_SELECT instead, which is the inverse of this option.

The virtual filesystem layer of select() redirects sockets to lwip_select() and non-socket file descriptors to their respective driver implementations. If this option is enabled then all calls of select() will be redirected to lwip_select(), therefore, select can be used for sockets only.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_SO_LINGER

Enable SO_LINGER processing

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Enabling this option allows SO_LINGER processing. l_onoff = 1,l_linger can set the timeout.

If l_linger=0, When a connection is closed, TCP will terminate the connection. This means that TCP will discard any data packets stored in the socket send buffer and send an RST to the peer.

If l_linger!=0,Then closesocket() calls to block the process until the remaining data packets has been sent or timed out.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_SO_REUSE

Enable SO_REUSEADDR option

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Enabling this option allows binding to a port which remains in TIME_WAIT.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_SO_REUSE_RXTOALL

SO_REUSEADDR copies broadcast/multicast to all matches

Found in: Component config > LWIP > CONFIG_LWIP_SO_REUSE

Enabling this option means that any incoming broadcast or multicast packet will be copied to all of the local sockets that it matches (may be more than one if SO_REUSEADDR is set on the socket.)

This increases memory overhead as the packets need to be copied, however they are only copied per matching socket. You can safely disable it if you don’t plan to receive broadcast or multicast traffic on more than one socket at a time.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_SO_RCVBUF

Enable SO_RCVBUF option

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Enabling this option allows checking for available data on a netconn.

Default value:
CONFIG_LWIP_STATS

Enable LWIP statistics

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Enabling this option allows LWIP statistics

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_ETHARP_TRUST_IP_MAC

Enable LWIP ARP trust

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Enabling this option allows ARP table to be updated.

If this option is enabled, the incoming IP packets cause the ARP table to be updated with the source MAC and IP addresses supplied in the packet. You may want to disable this if you do not trust LAN peers to have the correct addresses, or as a limited approach to attempt to handle spoofing. If disabled, lwIP will need to make a new ARP request if the peer is not already in the ARP table, adding a little latency. The peer *is* in the ARP table if it requested our address before. Also notice that this slows down input processing of every IP packet!

There are two known issues in real application if this feature is enabled: - The LAN peer may have bug to update the ARP table after the ARP entry is aged out. If the ARP entry on the LAN peer is aged out but failed to be updated, all IP packets sent from LWIP to the LAN peer will be dropped by LAN peer. - The LAN peer may not be trustful, the LAN peer may send IP packets to LWIP with two different MACs, but the same IP address. If this happens, the LWIP has problem to receive IP packets from LAN peer.

So the recommendation is to disable this option. Here the LAN peer means the other side to which the ESP station or soft-AP is connected.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_ESP_GRATUITOUS_ARP

Send gratuitous ARP periodically

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Enable this option allows to send gratuitous ARP periodically.

This option solve the compatibility issues.If the ARP table of the AP is old, and the AP doesn’t send ARP request to update it’s ARP table, this will lead to the STA sending IP packet fail. Thus we send gratuitous ARP periodically to let AP update it’s ARP table.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_DHCP_RESTORE_LAST_IP

DHCP: Restore last IP obtained from DHCP server

Found in: Component config > LWIP

When this option is enabled, DHCP client tries to re-obtain last valid IP address obtained from DHCP server. Last valid DHCP configuration is stored in nvs and restored after reset/power-up. If IP is still available, there is no need for sending discovery message to DHCP server and save some time.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_DHCP_OPTIONS_LEN

DHCP total option length

Found in: Component config > LWIP

Found in: Component config > LWIP > CONFIG_LWIP_AUTOIP

DHCP client will send this many probes before self-assigning a link local address.

From LWIP help: “This can be set as low as 1 to get an AutoIP address very quickly, but you should be prepared to handle a changing IP address when DHCP overrides AutoIP.” (In the case of ESP-IDF, this means multiple SYSTEM_EVENT_STA_GOT_IP events.)

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_LWIP_AUTOIP_MAX_CONFLICTS

Max IP conflicts before rate limiting

Found in: Component config > LWIP > CONFIG_LWIP_AUTOIP

If the AUTOIP functionality detects this many IP conflicts while self-assigning an address, it will go into a rate limited mode.

Default value:
  • 16

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_HIGH_SPEED_RETRANSMISSION

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_SND_BUF_DEFAULT

Default send buffer size

Found in: Component config > LWIP > TCP

Set default send buffer size for new TCP sockets.

Per-socket send buffer size can be changed at runtime with lwip_setsockopt(s, TCP_SNDBUF, …).

This value must be at least 2x the MSS size, and the default is 4x the default MSS size.

Setting a smaller default SNDBUF size can save some RAM, but will decrease performance.

Range:
Default value:
  • 5744

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_WND_DEFAULT

Default receive window size

Found in: Component config > LWIP > TCP

Set default TCP receive window size for new TCP sockets.

Per-socket receive window size can be changed at runtime with lwip_setsockopt(s, TCP_WINDOW, …).

Setting a smaller default receive window size can save some RAM, but will significantly decrease performance.

Range:
Default value:
  • 5744

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_RECVMBOX_SIZE

Default TCP receive mail box size

Found in: Component config > LWIP > TCP

Set TCP receive mail box size. Generally bigger value means higher throughput but more memory. The recommended value is: LWIP_TCP_WND_DEFAULT/TCP_MSS + 2, e.g. if LWIP_TCP_WND_DEFAULT=14360, TCP_MSS=1436, then the recommended receive mail box size is (14360/1436 + 2) = 12.

TCP receive mail box is a per socket mail box, when the application receives packets from TCP socket, LWIP core firstly posts the packets to TCP receive mail box and the application then fetches the packets from mail box. It means LWIP can caches maximum LWIP_TCP_RECCVMBOX_SIZE packets for each TCP socket, so the maximum possible cached TCP packets for all TCP sockets is LWIP_TCP_RECCVMBOX_SIZE multiples the maximum TCP socket number. In other words, the bigger LWIP_TCP_RECVMBOX_SIZE means more memory. On the other hand, if the receiv mail box is too small, the mail box may be full. If the mail box is full, the LWIP drops the packets. So generally we need to make sure the TCP receive mail box is big enough to avoid packet drop between LWIP core and application.

Range:
Default value:
  • 6

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_QUEUE_OOSEQ

Queue incoming out-of-order segments

Found in: Component config > LWIP > TCP

Queue incoming out-of-order segments for later use.

Disable this option to save some RAM during TCP sessions, at the expense of increased retransmissions if segments arrive out of order.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

TCP will support sending selective acknowledgements (SACKs).

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_KEEP_CONNECTION_WHEN_IP_CHANGES

Keep TCP connections when IP changed

Found in: Component config > LWIP > TCP

This option is enabled when the following scenario happen: network dropped and reconnected, IP changes is like: 192.168.0.2->0.0.0.0->192.168.0.2

Disable this option to keep consistent with the original LWIP code behavior.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_LWIP_TCP_OVERSIZE

Pre-allocate transmit PBUF size

Found in: Component config > LWIP > TCP

Allows enabling “oversize” allocation of TCP transmission pbufs ahead of time, which can reduce the length of pbuf chains used for transmission.

This will not make a difference to sockets where Nagle’s algorithm is disabled.

Default value of MSS is fine for most applications, 25% MSS may save some RAM when only transmitting small amounts of data. Disabled will have worst performance and fragmentation characteristics, but uses least RAM overall.

Available options:
  • MSS (LWIP_TCP_OVERSIZE_MSS)

  • 25% MSS (LWIP_TCP_OVERSIZE_QUARTER_MSS)

  • Disabled (LWIP_TCP_OVERSIZE_DISABLE)

CONFIG_LWIP_WND_SCALE

UDP

Contains:

CONFIG_LWIP_MAX_UDP_PCBS

Maximum active UDP control blocks

Found in: Component config > LWIP > UDP

The maximum number of active UDP “connections” (ie UDP sockets sending/receiving data). The practical maximum limit is determined by available heap memory at runtime.

Range:
  • from 1 to 1024

Default value:
  • 16

CONFIG_LWIP_UDP_RECVMBOX_SIZE

Default UDP receive mail box size

Found in: Component config > LWIP > UDP

Set UDP receive mail box size. The recommended value is 6.

UDP receive mail box is a per socket mail box, when the application receives packets from UDP socket, LWIP core firstly posts the packets to UDP receive mail box and the application then fetches the packets from mail box. It means LWIP can caches maximum UDP_RECCVMBOX_SIZE packets for each UDP socket, so the maximum possible cached UDP packets for all UDP sockets is UDP_RECCVMBOX_SIZE multiples the maximum UDP socket number. In other words, the bigger UDP_RECVMBOX_SIZE means more memory. On the other hand, if the receiv mail box is too small, the mail box may be full. If the mail box is full, the LWIP drops the packets. So generally we need to make sure the UDP receive mail box is big enough to avoid packet drop between LWIP core and application.

  • from 6 to 64

Default value:
  • 6

Hooks

Contains:

CONFIG_LWIP_HOOK_TCP_ISN

TCP ISN Hook

Found in: Component config > LWIP > Hooks

Enables to define a TCP ISN hook to randomize initial sequence number in TCP connection. The default TCP ISN algorithm used in IDF (standardized in RFC 6528) produces ISN by combining an MD5 of the new TCP id and a stable secret with the current time. This is because the lwIP implementation (tcp_next_iss) is not very strong, as it does not take into consideration any platform specific entropy source.

Set to LWIP_HOOK_TCP_ISN_CUSTOM to provide custom implementation. Set to LWIP_HOOK_TCP_ISN_NONE to use lwIP implementation.

Available options:
  • No hook declared (LWIP_HOOK_TCP_ISN_NONE)

mbedTLS

Contains:

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_MEM_ALLOC_MODE

Memory allocation strategy

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Allocation strategy for mbedTLS, essentially provides ability to allocate all required dynamic allocations from,

  • Internal DRAM memory only

  • External SPIRAM memory only

  • Either internal or external memory based on default malloc() behavior in ESP-IDF

  • Custom allocation mode, by overwriting calloc()/free() using mbedtls_platform_set_calloc_free() function

  • Internal IRAM memory wherever applicable else internal DRAM

Recommended mode here is always internal (*), since that is most preferred from security perspective. But if application requirement does not allow sufficient free internal memory then alternate mode can be selected.

(*) In case of ESP32-S2/ESP32-S3, hardware allows encryption of external SPIRAM contents provided hardware flash encryption feature is enabled. In that case, using external SPIRAM allocation strategy is also safe choice from security perspective.

Available options:
  • Internal memory (MBEDTLS_INTERNAL_MEM_ALLOC)

  • External SPIRAM (MBEDTLS_EXTERNAL_MEM_ALLOC)

  • Default alloc mode (MBEDTLS_DEFAULT_MEM_ALLOC)

  • Custom alloc mode (MBEDTLS_CUSTOM_MEM_ALLOC)

  • Internal IRAM (MBEDTLS_IRAM_8BIT_MEM_ALLOC)

    Allows to use IRAM memory region as 8bit accessible region.

    TLS input and output buffers will be allocated in IRAM section which is 32bit aligned memory. Every unaligned (8bit or 16bit) access will result in an exception and incur penalty of certain clock cycles per unaligned read/write.

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_SSL_MAX_CONTENT_LEN

TLS maximum message content length

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Maximum TLS message length (in bytes) supported by mbedTLS.

16384 is the default and this value is required to comply fully with TLS standards.

However you can set a lower value in order to save RAM. This is safe if the other end of the connection supports Maximum Fragment Length Negotiation Extension (max_fragment_length, see RFC6066) or you know for certain that it will never send a message longer than a certain number of bytes.

If the value is set too low, symptoms are a failed TLS handshake or a return value of MBEDTLS_ERR_SSL_INVALID_RECORD (-0x7200).

Range:
  • from 512 to 16384

Default value:
  • 16384

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_ASYMMETRIC_CONTENT_LEN

Asymmetric in/out fragment length

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

If enabled, this option allows customizing TLS in/out fragment length in asymmetric way. Please note that enabling this with default values saves 12KB of dynamic memory per TLS connection.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_SSL_IN_CONTENT_LEN

TLS maximum incoming fragment length

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_ASYMMETRIC_CONTENT_LEN

This defines maximum incoming fragment length, overriding default maximum content length (MBEDTLS_SSL_MAX_CONTENT_LEN).

Range:
  • from 512 to 16384

Default value:
  • 16384

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_SSL_OUT_CONTENT_LEN

TLS maximum outgoing fragment length

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_ASYMMETRIC_CONTENT_LEN

This defines maximum outgoing fragment length, overriding default maximum content length (MBEDTLS_SSL_MAX_CONTENT_LEN).

Range:
  • from 512 to 16384

Default value:
  • 4096

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_BUFFER

Using dynamic TX/RX buffer

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Using dynamic TX/RX buffer. After enabling this option, mbedTLS will allocate TX buffer when need to send data and then free it if all data is sent, allocate RX buffer when need to receive data and then free it when all data is used or read by upper layer.

By default, when SSL is initialized, mbedTLS also allocate TX and RX buffer with the default value of “MBEDTLS_SSL_OUT_CONTENT_LEN” or “MBEDTLS_SSL_IN_CONTENT_LEN”, so to save more heap, users can set the options to be an appropriate value.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_FREE_PEER_CERT

Free SSL peer certificate after its usage

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_BUFFER

Free peer certificate after its usage in handshake process.

Default value:
CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_FREE_CONFIG_DATA

Free private key and DHM data after its usage

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_BUFFER

Free private key and DHM data after its usage in handshake process.

The option will decrease heap cost when handshake, but also lead to problem:

Becasue all certificate, private key and DHM data are freed so users should register certificate and private key to ssl config object again.

Default value:
CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_FREE_CA_CERT

Free SSL ca certificate after its usage

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_BUFFER > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DYNAMIC_FREE_CONFIG_DATA

Free ca certificate after its usage in the handshake process. This option will decrease the heap footprint for the TLS handshake, but may lead to a problem: If the respective ssl object needs to perform the TLS handshake again, the ca certificate should once again be registered to the ssl object.

Default value:
CONFIG_MBEDTLS_DEBUG

Enable mbedTLS debugging

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Enable mbedTLS debugging functions at compile time.

If this option is enabled, you can include “mbedtls/esp_debug.h” and call mbedtls_esp_enable_debug_log() at runtime in order to enable mbedTLS debug output via the ESP log mechanism.

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HARDWARE_AES

Enable hardware AES acceleration

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Enable hardware accelerated AES encryption & decryption.

Note that if the ESP32 CPU is running at 240MHz, hardware AES does not offer any speed boost over software AES.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled) if SPIRAM_CACHE_WORKAROUND_STRATEGY_DUPLDST

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_AES_USE_INTERRUPT

Use interrupt for long AES operations

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HARDWARE_AES

This allows other code to run on the CPU while an AES operation is pending. Otherwise the CPU busy-waits.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HARDWARE_MPI

Enable hardware MPI (bignum) acceleration

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Enable hardware accelerated multiple precision integer operations.

Hardware accelerated multiplication, modulo multiplication, and modular exponentiation for up to 4096 bit results.

These operations are used by RSA.

Default value:

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HARDWARE_SHA

Enable hardware SHA acceleration

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Enable hardware accelerated SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 & SHA512 in mbedTLS.

Due to a hardware limitation, on the ESP32 hardware acceleration is only guaranteed if SHA digests are calculated one at a time. If more than one SHA digest is calculated at the same time, one will be calculated fully in hardware and the rest will be calculated (at least partially calculated) in software. This happens automatically.

SHA hardware acceleration is faster than software in some situations but slower in others. You should benchmark to find the best setting for you.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled) if SPIRAM_CACHE_WORKAROUND_STRATEGY_DUPLDST

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_ROM_MD5

Use MD5 implementation in ROM

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_ATCA_HW_ECDSA_VERIFY

Enable hardware ECDSA verify acceleration when using ATECC608A

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

This option enables hardware acceleration for ECDSA sign function, only when using ATECC608A cryptoauth chip (integrated with ESP32-WROOM-32SE)

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME

Enable mbedtls time support

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS

Enable use of time.h functions (time() and gmtime()) by mbedTLS.

This option doesn’t require the system time to be correct, but enables functionality that requires relative timekeeping - for example periodic expiry of TLS session tickets or session cache entries.

Disabling this option will save some firmware size, particularly if the rest of the firmware doesn’t call any standard timekeeeping functions.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME_DATE

Enable mbedtls certificate expiry check

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS > CONFIG_MBEDTLS_HAVE_TIME

Enables X.509 certificate expiry checks in mbedTLS.

If this option is disabled (default) then X.509 certificate “valid from” and “valid to” timestamp fields are ignored.

If this option is enabled, these fields are compared with the current system date and time. The time is retrieved using the standard time() and gmtime() functions. If the certificate is not valid for the current system time then verification will fail with code MBEDTLS_X509_BADCERT_FUTURE or MBEDTLS_X509_BADCERT_EXPIRED.

Enabling this option requires adding functionality in the firmware to set the system clock to a valid timestamp before using TLS. The recommended way to do this is via ESP-IDF’s SNTP functionality, but any method can be used.

In the case where only a small number of certificates are trusted by the device, please carefully consider the tradeoffs of enabling this option. There may be undesired consequences, for example if all trusted certificates expire while the device is offline and a TLS connection is required to update. Or if an issue with the SNTP server means that the system time is invalid for an extended period after a reset.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_MBEDTLS_ECDSA_DETERMINISTIC

Enable deterministic ECDSA

Found in: Component config > mbedTLS
