The Hifn 7956 security processor is ideal for wireless applications with the acceleration of the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and AES Counter Mode
encryption with CBC-MAC Protocol (CCMP), and its high-speed LZS(R) compression engines to increase packet throughput.
In the case of a common authentication algorithm called Advanced Encryption Standard with Galois Counter Mode
(AES-GCM), a non-repeatable special parameter, or nonce, is required to achieve security.
The newly introduced IP core, JetCombo-3, features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Counter mode
with CBC-MAC (AES-CCM), Galois-Counter Mode
(AES-GCM), and XTS-AES mode (XEX-based Tweaked-codebook-mode with ciphertext-Stealing) all combined in the same IP core by sharing hardware resources.
The product line features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Counter mode
with CBC-MAC (AES-CCM), Galois Counter Mode
(AES-GCM), XEX-AES, Triple-DES, Secure Hashing cores, and multiple-standard combined cores.
