I am working on an experiment to share a crypto processing offload device to multiple VMs (Pv-on-HVM).
For this, I am looking to develop frontend and backend drivers similar to netfront and netback.
I want to use different device type (may be "vcrypt") similar to "vif/vbd"

Is it possible to add my own device types on XEN?
If so, Could you please suggest how to do?

Thanks & Regards,
