    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)?
