The focus of this technical paper is on how the Nucleus OS Security Services can be used to exploit the encryption hardware available on the PPC8349E to achieve significant performance increases. The evaluation platform provides a complete system for utilizing and evaluating the performance of the MD4, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, DES, 3DES, CAST-128, Blowfish, and AES encryption algorithms, using either pure software or hardware acceleration.
