The Cryptographic Framework supplies the SPARC T-Series systems with cryptographic mechanisms, and optimizes some mechanisms for these servers. Three cryptographic mechanisms are optimized for data at rest and in motion: AES-CBC, AES-CFB128, and ARCFOUR. Several cryptographic mechanisms are optimized for OpenSSL: DES, and by optimizing arbitrary-precision arithmetic (bignum), RSA and DSA. Other optimizations include small packet performance for handshakes and data in motion.
The following cryptographic mechanisms are available in this release:
AES-XTS – Used for data at rest
SHA-224 – SHA2 mechanism
AES-XCBC-MAC – Used for IPsec
