Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) performance
By sprack on Jul 11, 2008
On a recent rev of Nevada, I just ran some ECC (elliptic curve cryptography) ubenchmarks, comparing a UltraSPARC T2 using the HW crypto accelerators and a 3GHz Xeon:
These numbers are for ecdsa operations. The Xeon #s are from openSSL speed (optimized compilation), while the T2 #s are generating from interacting directly with the framework. These numbers are for binary curves using Galois field operations.
