Abstract or Summary
  • Hardware cryptography offers a reliable way to provide security for data that is sent over networks. Security processors have taken the stage in the movement for secure computing. Some of the more prominent security processors belong to the S1 family created by Motorola. The primary goal of this thesis is to document and test the performance of one of these processors, the MPC180, by executing efficient code for standard cryptographic algorithms. The MPC180 is a network security co- processor which is capable of performing on-the-fly encryption of all network data, thus adding an extra layer of security. This processor is capable of performing inten- sive cryptographic computations, while offloading the burden of these computations from the host processor, thus freeing up valuable resources on the host to perform other functions. A real-time operating system (VxWorks) and its associated tools (Tornado) were used to accurately examine and time the operation of the security processor. The results are compared to other cryptographic hardware and software implementations.
