All applications utilizing cryptography in one way or another are heavy users of CPU time. To address this concern, Sun Microsystems designed the Crypto Accelerator I Board, a PCI card with the following features:

  • 1024-bit RSA encryption

  • DH and DSA operations

  • Support for OpenSSL and Cryptokit 2.2

  • Accelerates SSL transaction by a factor of 5

  • Hardware true random-number generator

  • Supports both the Apache and iPlanet web servers

This board performs all mathematical calculations and dramatically decreases the CPU’s load.
