Solaris 10 What's New

IKE Hardware Acceleration

This feature is new in the Software Express pilot program and in the Solaris 9 4/03 release. This feature is included in the Solaris 10 3/05 release.

Public-key operations in IKE can be accelerated by a Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000 card and Sun Crypto Accelerator 4000 cards. The operations are offloaded to the card. The offloading accelerates encryption and reduces demands on Solaris Operating System resources.
