IP Cores, Inc. Announces a New Encryption Core Supporting the IPsec Security Protocol.
Palo Alto, California -- July 26, 2010 -- IP Cores, Inc. has announced the first core of its new high-speed IPsec security processor family.
"The new ISP1 core is a self-contained implementation of the IPsec packet encryption and authentication algorithms as defined by the IETF," said Dmitri Varsanofiev, CTO of IP Cores. "Our extensible implementation of the IPsec fits well into the decentralized on-chip processing datapath of the modern routers".
Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) is a protocol used to secure the Internet Protocol (IP) communications by authenticating and/or encrypting IP packets of a data stream.
ISP1 core support both the ESP and AH protocols of IPsec in transport and tunnel modes of operation, including insertion and removal of headers and trailers, padding, Integrity Check Value (ICV) insertion and validation.
ISP supports all encryption algorithms per RFC 4835, including AES-CBC-128, AES-CBC-256, TripleDES-CBC, HMAC-SHA1-96, AES-XCBC-MAC-96. Additional algorithms are available as separate options.
