Abstract
The growth of the Internet as a vehicle for secure
communication and electronic commerce has brought
cryptographic processing performance to the forefront of
high throughput system design. This trend will be further
underscored with the widespread adoption of secure
protocols such as secure IP (IPSEC) and virtual private
networks (VPNs).
In this paper, we introduce the CryptoManiac processor,
a fast and flexible co-processor for cryptographic
workloads. Our design is extremely efficient; we present
analysis of a 0.25um physical design that runs the standard
