Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium --- June 19, 2014 -- Barco Silex, a leading provider of cryptography IP cores, announced today the new AES-GCM (BA415) IP core for 10 to 100 Gbps applications.
The AES-GCM (Galois Counter Mode) is an authenticated encryption algorithm which combines the AES counter mode for encryption and the Galois field multiplier for the authentication.
Our AES-GCM core is designed to provide high performance within a small area. Thanks to our unique architecture, we propose a flexible solution enabling trade-off between area, performance and technology. The AES-GCM core is available for ASIC and FPGA technology. Its low area footprint enables implementation with mid-range FPGA devices.
The AES-GCM IP core is ideal for high speed networking and storage. The algorithm is well suited for applications like Optical Transport Network (OTN), broadband access and storage. AES-GCM is referenced in multiple standards such as, MACsec and IPsec.
“It is an obvious choice for networking applications that require high performance and efficient use of silicon resources.” said Sebastien Rabou, Crypto Product Manager of Barco Silex. “The easy integration combined with an unrivaled performance to cost ratio confirms the leadership of Barco Silex in terms of high quality cryptographic IP cores”
