Lowering the overhead for cryptographic operations like AES encryption lowers the barrier for adoption, delivering a better user experience and security
IBM GSKit* leverages Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) to accelerate AES encryption
IBM Global Security Kit* (GSKit) provides libraries and utilities to enable SSL or TLS communication for IBM products. The workload tests the speed of cryptographic operations including SHA, AES, and RSA.
GSKit*: ICC 8.5, GSKit performance test. AES test: Block size 128K, 128 bit keys. RSA test: 2048 bit keys. SHA test: Block size 128K, SHA1 and SHA256 tested. Testing by IBM® and Intel® May 2017. Baseline: 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v4, 2.2GHz, 22 cores, turbo and HT on, BIOS 0271.R00, 384GB total memory, 24 slots / 16GB / 1600 MT/s / DDR4 LRDIMM, 1 x 800GB Intel SSD DC S3700, Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 7.3 kernel 3.10.0-514.16.1.el7.x86_64. New: 2S Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor 8180, 2.5GHz, 28 cores, turbo and HT on, BIOS 86B.01.00.0412.020920172159, 384GB total memory, 24 slots / 16GB / 2677 MT/s / DDR4 LRDIMM, 1 x 800GB Intel SSD DC S3700, Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 7.3 kernel 3.10.0-514.16.1.el7.x86_64.
Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
