AES-NI in Laymen’s Terms

To understand how the AES Rijndael algorithm works I highly recommend that you look at Jeff Moser’s “A Stick Figure Guide to the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) – A play in 4 acts”. This creative stick figure cartoon approach to describing the AES algorithm is one of the best ways I have seen for communicating how AES works. Read more >

AES Counter Mode details (Intel AES-NI implementation)

In this article we’ll take a closer look at AES counter (CTR) mode implementation from Intel® AES-NI library (it can be downloaded from http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-intel-aesni-sample-library/). AES stands for Advanced Encryption Standard and it is a symmetric encryption standard. More detailed information about AES at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard. AES-NI refers to Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Instructions Set which [...] Read more >
