The Intel® AES New Instructions (AES-NI) Sample Library is no longer maintained. Most cryptographic libraries today support AES-NI, and development resources can be found in their documentation.
The Intel® AES New Instructions (AES-NI) Sample Library demonstrates how one might implement a high performance Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) block cipher using the new AES-NI instructions available in Intel® Core™ i5, Intel® Core™ i7, Intel® Xeon® 5600 series and newer processors. All code samples can be compiled and run as native 32-bit or 64-bit binaries for both Microsoft Windows* and Linux* operating systems. This package is divided into three parts; The Intel® AES sample library, an AES example implementation using the library, and an application that compares Dr. Brian Gladman’s AES performance with that of the AES-NI optimized library.
