Optimizing Solaris 11 SHA-1 on Intel Processors

SHA-1 is optimized on Solaris x86 using an interesting combination of Intel SSSE3 instructions, 128-bit %xmm registers, and vectorizing 16 rounds of SHA-1 in parallel.[Read More]

Optimizing AES modes on Solaris for Intel Westmere

Solaris 11 for x86 optimizes AES-CTR, AES-CBC, and AES-ECB modes with an innovative mixture of using 128-bit %xmm registers, AESNI instructions, processing AES and mode operations at the same time, and interleaving 4 AES blocks at a time. As a result is higher performance over using AESNI alone as a separate operation.[Read More]

Solaris AESNI OpenSSL Engine for Intel Westmere

The Solaris aesni engine for Intel Westmere uses the new Intel AESNI instructions for AES cryptography. Solaris 11 for x86 includes OpenSSL with the AESNI engine patched into OpenSSL as a built-in engine. The result is higher performance AES operations when running OpenSSL.[Read More]

SPARC T4 OpenSSL Engine

The new SPARC T4 processor adds several built-in instructions for cryptography, including AES. The new OpenSSL T4 engine on Solaris 11 takes advantage of these new T4 AES instructions. The result is higher performance AES operations when running OpenSSL. [Read More]
