Synopsys Ultra High-Performance AES-GCM/CTR IP

The proliferation and expansion of connected devices, connectivity infrastructure, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence, is driving for increased need for high-grade security that keeps up with the hyper-connected and hyper-speed technology requirements to protect the significant increase in volume of confidential information and critical data.

AES with Galois/Counter Mode (AES-GCM) is a symmetric cryptographic algorithm that provides scalable authenticated encryption and data integrity and is used in many applications and security protocols.

The Synopsys Ultra High-Performance AES-GCM/CTR IP implements the AES-GCM/CTR algorithm as specified in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-38D, “Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation: Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) and GMAC” to achieve terabit performance required for supercomputing applications. It uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm in counter mode (CTR), and a high-performance MAC algorithm based on Galois Field multiplication with CTR mode encryption, which can be pipelined for high throughput operations.

The Synopsys Ultra High-Performance AES-GCM/CTR Cryptographic Cores support for FIPS 140-3 certification and passed NIST CAVP validation.
