Intel AES-NI

Utilizing AES New Instructions (AES-NI) in a Windows* 8 C# App

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.

INTRODUCTION TO INTEL® AES-NI AND INTEL® SECURE KEY INSTRUCTIONS

Starting in 2010 with the Intel® Core™ processor family based on the 32nm Intel® microarchitecture, Intel introduced a set of new AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) instructions. This processor launch brought seven new instructions.
