Security Protocol Processor PCI-X Server Adapter / CN1230 Cavium® Based

The Silicom protocol processor adapter is a complete PCI-X adapter solution that incorporates specialized features for IPSec, IKE, SSL and TLS protocol processing. The Silicom protocol processor PCI-X adapter is based on Cavium CN1230.

The Silicom protocol processor PCI-X adapter provides bulk cryptographic acceleration for 3DES, DES, AES and ARCFOUR symmetric encryption algorithms, for the SHA-1 and MD5 hash algorithm, and for the HMAC-SHA-1 and HMAC-MD5 keyed authentication algorithms. It provides public key acceleration for the RSA, DSA, and Diffie-Helman asymmetric algorithms, as well as basic Modular Math functions.

The Silicom protocol processor PCI-X adapter provides a True Random Number Generator and can use it to generate on-chip random values for Diffie-Helman key generation and DSA signatures.

The Silicom protocol processor PCI-X adapter provides combined encryption and HMAC authentication for single authentication for single-pass Ipsec processing. It also provides SSL MAC and TLS HMAC functions needed for SSL and TLS record layer processing.

The Silicom Protocol Processor PCI-X adapter is the ideal solution for high-end and mid-end virtual private networking (VPN), firewall appliances and SSL-based appliances.
