Inline Security Acceleration and Chip-to-Chip Channel Security between IDUs (Internal Distributed Unit)

The diagram below illustrates one example of lookaside MACsec encryption/decryption acceleration using Grand Ridge CPU and Agilex™ 7 FPGA. The encrypted or decrypted traffic is offloaded from the Grand Ridge CPU to FPGA and the soft MACsec IP processes the packets and then sends it back to the CPU.
