Overview

This document describes the structure, operation, and functions of Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) Cryptography. The document provides a background for cryptography concepts used in the Intel IPP Cryptography software as well as detailed description of the respective Intel IPP Cryptography functions. The Intel IPP Cryptography functions are combined in groups by their functionality. Each group of functions is described in a separate.
For more information about cryptographic concepts and algorithms, refer to the books and materials listed in the Bibliography.

Product and Performance Information

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
