LOS GATOS, Calif. -- Network security and flow classification market leader Hifn™ (Nasdaq: HIFN), today announced the addition of the HIPP 7855 HXL Security Acceleration Board to the Hifn Acceleration (HXL) Board Family. Based on Hifn’s Intelligent Packet Processing (HIPP) proprietary silicon, the 7855 HXL delivers market-leading system-level performance with minimal customer integration effort.

The HIPP 7855 HXL board can be used with a wide variety of networking equipment such as VPN secure routers and gateways, firewall appliances, integrated service routers, wireless switch/gateways, VoIP gateways, and SAN gateways. With 725Mbps IPsec processing and 690Mbps SSL Record Processing, the HIPP 7855 HXL meets the IPsec and SSL performance requirements of OEM customers looking to quickly integrate security into their system design.

Based on Hifn’s HIPP 7855 security processor, the HIPP 7855 HXL board family provides high-performance, single-pass compression, encryption, and authentication, and complete protocol support for IPsec, IPv6, SSL/TLS, IPPCP (IPcomp), TLScomp, and PPTP. Supported algorithms include LZS® Compression, DES, Triple DES, AES (with 128, 192, and 256-bit key lengths), and ARC4 encryption; MD5, SHA-1 hashing and authentication; RSA, DSA, and Diffie-Hellman public key support for SSL and IKE; hardware supported 3,072-bit modular arithmetic and exponentiation, plus true Random Number Generation (RNG). Local SDRAM holds the security context, freeing up bandwidth on the PCI bus. The HIPP 7855 HXL board family includes a 32/64-bit PCI v 2.2 interface with support for 33/66 MHz bus speeds.

“The security performance required in enterprise class equipment continues to increase, placing a greater burden on the host processor,” said Glenn Haley, product line manager at Hifn, Inc. “The HIPP 7855 HXL is perfect for customers with more sophisticated IPsec systems that want to off-load compute intensive header and trailer processing. Off-loading the sequence number checking is also a big gain for the customer’s host processor.”
