Posedge Announces High-Performance Unified-Security (MACsec + IPSEC) Solution
August 31, 2010 -- Posedge, Inc. has announced the availability of PE-UNISEC Soft IP Core that performs integrated MAC Security fully conforming to IEEE 802.1AE standard and IPSEC ESP protocol processing. Posedge has developed the PE-UNISEC engine leveraging its experience in Internet security technologies such as MACsec, IPSEC, SSL, and high-performance crypto infrastructure.
The PE-UNISEC solution is targeted for markets that require multiple security-protocol-processing support at the same time. The IP supports interleaving at 128-Byte boundaries thereby avoiding the need for full packet buffering. The internal resources such as the Crypto Engine, MIB Statistics, and Security Association Database are leveraged across different security protocol processors resulting in a drastic reduction in area and power consumption.
The IP supports line rate for all packet and frame sizes, and the cut-through architecture makes it a very low-latency engine. The IP is silicon-proven and interoperated with Layer 2/3 devices from various networking vendors. The architecture is very generic and highly modular to address customer specific requirements with generic FIFO and Host Interfaces.
"The PE-UNISEC further expands our portfolio of embedded security solutions and is built on our experience in developing security solutions from Layer 2 to Layer 4 with our customers," said Surya Hotha, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Posedge. "The IP is highly optimized and designed ground up for optimal power/ performance. Our new product enables customers to implement complete Layer 2 and Layer 3 security into networking gear such as Ethernet controllers, LAN-on-motherboard, and storage platforms."
PE-UNISEC IP Core key features
Posedge provides, as part of the IP licensing package, Verilog RTL code, self-checking OVM based testbench and testcases, synthesis scripts, reference drivers, elaborate documentation with functional coverage results, and extensive customer support. Posedge also offers a suite of design services for customization and integration of the IP cores into customer's ICs or FPGAs for prototyping.
