Update: Synopsys Expands Security Solutions with Acquisition of Elliptic Technologies (June 29, 2015)
Presentation on MACsec security protocol and panel discussions on Ethernet Security
March 28, 2013 – Ottawa, Canada:Elliptic Technologies, a leading provider of complete embedded security and content protection solutions, today announced the company will present at the Ethernet Technology Summit 2013, April 2-4, in Santa Clara, California. The paper titled “Designing MACsec in” concerns the IEEE 802.1AE security standard (also known as MACsec) which protects data traversing Ethernet systems.
The paper will discuss MACsec in an era of very high throughput data connections, specifically 10/40/100 Gbps traffic. To achieve high throughput, MACsec must be implemented in hardware. Naturally, MACsec is intended to be implemented in a MAC, but sometimes this is not possible or desirable, as when MACsec functionality is added to existing systems. Fortunately, there are other options available to chip and system architects. The talk will explain these options, along with their respective advantages and drawbacks.
Jean-Pierre Thibault, Senior Hardware Architect at Elliptic Technologies, will present and join panelists for the Ethernet Security session #A-202 scheduled for April 4.

About Ethernet Technology Summit
The Ethernet Technology Summit focuses on the use of Ethernet throughout the networking space. This includes the emergence of 10-Gigabit Ethernet as a key LAN technology on the desktop and in data centers. It also covers the emerging standards for 40-Gigabit and 100-Gigabit Ethernet. It also includes the use of Ethernet as a carrier backbone and transport method, as well as in storage applications and in virtualized data centers and clouds. Other topics of interest include design and development, fabrics, chipsets and components, security, delay and packet loss, convergence, big data, and market research.
