Abstract

In this paper, we describe the architecture of a Cyber-Security Processor (CYSEP) which can serve as a key module for enhancing security for high-speed networks/systems. The CYSEP supports, at wire-speed, four major functions, namely, firewall/ intrusion detection, encryption/decryption, message authentication, and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack protection. The CYSEP is to be implemented on an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) with the state-of-art CMOS 0.18-mircron technology and expected to operate at 10 Gbps or higher. Massive parallelism and pipelining technique are to be employed in the ASIC to achieve the 10 Gbps wire-speed operation.
