Cavium Networks™ Announces Industry's First 10Gbps IPsec and SSL PCI-Express Security Accelerators
NITROX PX XL accelerators significantly boost IPsec, SSL, Storage Encryption performance of x86 systems to achieve up to 10Gbps and up to 65,000 RSA OPS; NITROX PX XL accelerators on display at Intel Developers Forum
Cavium Networks’ NITROX PX XL Accelerator accelerators are on display at the Intel Developer Forum, San Francisco, Sept 18 -20, 2007 and Cavium Networks is participating in a panel discussion at IDF about trends of networking and application acceleration processors.
“With the highest performance product line, a broad range of interface connectivity, and support for the latest algorithms and protocols, Cavium Networks has established itself as the worldwide market-share leader in network-security accelerators“, said Bob Wheeler, senior analyst with The Linley Group. “This new product will help Cavium’s existing customers in networking, UTM, L4-L7 and SSL Server applications as well as newer customers requiring an easy-to-integrate solution.”
The NITROX PX XL PCI-Express Accelerators
The NITROX PX XL provides a high-performance, power efficient PCI-Express security accelerator for a broad range of networking, security and storage applications. Key features and benefits include:
Compact design that fits in a single-slot with PCI-Express x4, x8 lane connectivity. These accelerators support up to four (4) NITROX PX CN1620 security processors, which include security related packet and protocol processing, encryption/decryption and asymmetric processing.
The latest, future-proof cryptographic algorithms which include symmetric algorithms DES, 3DES, ARC4, AES 256-bit (ECB, CBC, XCBC,CNTR, GCM), Data-at-rest storage security AES algorithms, hashing algorithms MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2, MAC-MD5/SHA-1/SHA-2,HMAC-MD5/SHA-1/SHA-2, asymmetric algorithms RSA (4096 w/o CRT), Diffie-Hellman and KASUMI for 3G / 4G wireless applications...
Simultaneous multi-protocol support for SSL, IPsec and other security protocols while providing adaptive processing between session-setup and bulk processing.
NITROX PX XL accelerators enable industry’s highest performance for SSL and IPsec within a single PCI-Express card, including SSL performance of up to 65,000 SSL transactions per second and 10Gbps SSL record processing (ARC4 + MD5), and IPsec performance of up to 10Gbps of 3DES+SHA1 packet processing, 90K (180 bit exp) Diffie-Hellman operations/second.
NITROX PX XL Accelerator Software Support
The NITROX PX XL accelerator family is supported by a rich set of software, including Linux, BSD and operating system independent drivers, and APIs for IPsec, SSL and crypto processing used in storage security applications.
“Cavium’s NITROX PX XL accelerators enable networking, storage and wireless vendors to quickly integrate high-performance security acceleration with the latest algorithms,” said Rajneesh Gaur, Director of Product Marketing at Cavium Networks. “Building upon the success of our existing NITROX security processor family and recent collaboration announcement with Intel we look forward to provide our customers with world-class application acceleration solutions.”
Availability and Pricing
Samples for NITROX PX XL NHB4 accelerators are available now. Pricing in 100 unit quantities is $1250.
