Hifn Announces Flow Through(TM) Security for Gigabit Ethernet

via PRNewswire

System Integration Benefits -- The 8450 minimizes external part count and allows glueless interfacing to a broad array of Ethernet PHYs and host MACdevices. The new Ethernet interface options include RMII, RTBI, GMII, TBI,SerDes, and SGMII. A single DDR2 ECC SDRAM interface allows running on-chip IKE as well as supporting large numbers of secure tunnels, reducing the boardcost and real estate requirements.

Security Features -- The 8450 offers a rich suite of cryptographicalgorithms, including: DES, 3DES, AES-CBC, AES-CTR, AES-CCM, AES-GCM, SHA-1,SHA-256, MD5, and AES-XCBCMAC. An on-chip Public Key engine supportsDiffie-Hellman, RSA and DSA operations at up to 8192- bit modulus size.

Performance -- The 8450 supports two full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet portsand delivers 4 Gb/s simultaneous protocol processing for large packets and 1.2M packets per second for small packets. Up to 1,000,000 Security Associations (SAs) are supported with external DDR2 SDRAM.

Availability and Price

The HIPP III 8450 processor will be sampling to lead customers in the third quarter of 2006. The 8450 is priced at $120 in quantities of 10K.
