IPsec Engine | Silex Insight

IPsec Engine

The IPsec Engine implements RFC4301 and other relevant RFCs, providing confidentiality, connectionless data integrity, data-origin authentication and replay protection on OSI layer 3.

The scalable architecture provides low-latency, line rate acceleration of packet encapsulation, encryption and replay protection. Its modular design not only gives the ability to choose between different cryptographic algorithms, but also provides fine-grained control on classification features, packet formats, and more. Integration with a wide range of performance or area-optimized cryptographic IP cores allows unrivalled trade-off possibilities between throughput, area and latency.

FEATURES

Wide Area of Applications

The IPsec engine will bring the most efficient and flexible solution to your data processing needs, whatever technology and architecture you choose.

Environments in which the IPsec will prove an essential boost are:

IPsec ensures network integrity

There are three common network security protocol standards:

Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) networking reference model

IPsec (layer 3) provide for the authentication, confidentiality, and integrity of communications.

IPsec provides a transparent end-to-end secure channel for upper-layer protocols, and implementations do not require modifications to those protocols or to applications. It is a mature protocol suite that supports a range of encryption and hashing algorithms and is highly scalable and interoperable.

HOW SMART HARDWARE CAN BOOST YOUR DATA CENTER

HIGH-PERFORMANCE IP BLOCKS OFFLOAD NETWORK AND SECURITY PROCESSING

 

 
  • Cloud computing is ramping up like never before. New host applications are routinely designed to serve millions of clients, and each of these clients expects high-speed service, minimal latency, and tight security.

    Learn more about the key components to boost your data center:

    • Record-breaking MACsec performance (up to 1.5Tbps)

  • • The fastest SSL/TLS handshaking engines in the industry

  • • IPsec for secure connections
  •  • …and much more

What distinguishes our IPsec from the competition is its extremely high scalability and flexibility,
 
Application designers can now really optimize the hardware trade-off between throughput, latency and available resources. For each application, they can add the most powerful IPsec engine at the lowest cost, without having to over-dimension their hardware.
