Handle one million IPSec SAs at 100 Gbps using Arrive Technologies’ IPSec core and the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000 card

Arrive Technologies’ FPGA-accelerated IP security (IPSec) IP core, optimized for the Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (PAC) N3000, delivers wire-speed cryptographic processing (including AES-GCM (128/192/256), AES-CBC (128/192/256), SHA-1/2, and others) at Ethernet rates as fast as 100 Gbps while handling as many as one million Security Associations (SAs). With this sort of performance, Arrive’s IPSec solution based on the Intel FPGA PAC N3000 card allows vendors to meet 5G IPSec security requirements. Offloading the IPSec functions to the Intel FPGA PAC N3000 card allows the server’s host CPU to handle more network traffic with the same number of processor cores, boosting system performance while reducing overall system power consumption.

A new Intel Solution Brief titled “Accelerating IPSec with Arrive Technologies on the Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000” describes the Arrive Technologies IPSec solution in more detail.
