This section highlights information for existing customers about new features in encryption support in this release.

  • Oracle Solaris supports both FIPS-capable and non FIPS-capable versions of OpenSSL.

  • On SPARC T4 systems with cryptographic optimizations, cryptographic instructions are available directly in hardware, which enables cryptographic operations to run faster.

  • The Cryptographic Framework supports Camellia, a 128-bit block cipher that is similar to AES and is mostly used in the Japanese market.
