STM32F4 Cryptographic Acceleration

I am implementing a platform that must implement Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS).


I have the option of using the STM32F439x which includes Cryptographic Acceleration describbed in the datasheet as:
     "Cryptographic acceleration: hardware acceleration for AES 128, 192, 256, Triple DES, HASH (MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2), and HMAC"


It seems that the 'STM32 Cryptographic Library' uses this acceleration.


Not being a security expert, I am having a hard time understanding if the Cryptographic Acceleration is useful for DTLS.


Does anyone have experience in this?
