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]

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]
