The Intel Academic Program announces new software projects for security coursework, labs and experiments. These tools support the Intel Security Curriculum Series and can be used in general aspects of security instruction. Peruse our first projects on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Trusted Boot, Identity Protection and Digital Random Number Generator (DRNG) here on the Security tab: http://software.intel.com/academic
AES-NI is a new security feature available on the latest Intel® Atom™ Z3000 processors (codename Bay Trail). AES-NI provides a set of hardware instructions onboard the processor that implement some of the intensive sub-steps of the AES algorithm. This yields additional performance when performing AES cryptographic operations. This blog discusses a method of adding encryption and decryption that utilizes AES-NI in a Windows 8 C# app.
What is AES-NI - first answer
AES-NI are a set of six new instructions introduced by Intel when we introduced the new 2010 Intel® Core™ processor family code named Westmere. AES-NI stands for Advanced Encryption Standard - New Instructions. These instructions implement hardware accelerated versions of certain compute intensive steps used in the AES (RijnDael) algorithm.
Okay - so what is the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)?
