  • AES-GCM Encryption Performance on Intel® Xeon® E5 v3 Processors

    This case study examines the architectural improvements made to the Intel® Xeon® E5 v3 processor family in order to improve the performance of the Galois/Counter Mode of AES block encryption. It looks at the impact of these improvements on the nginx* web server when backed by the OpenSSL* SSL/TLS library. With this new generation of Xeon processors, web servers can obtain significant increases in maximum throughput by switching from AES in CBC mode with HMAC+SHA1 digests to AES-GCM.
