Asynchronous Cryptography



  • Hi,

    Can the new IPSec advanced setting "Asynchronous Cryptography" be used single sided or do both ends of the tunnel need to support this?

    And does this setting need AES-NI to be enabled, or is it still doing some good when there is no AES-NI, or if AES-NI is disabled?

    Kind regards,
    Rene.

    It can be on one side or both, doesn't matter, it doesn't affect the crypto itself only how it's dispatched between the CPU cores on your hardware.

    It can work with or without AES-NI



  • Alright, that’s clear.
    Thanks Jimp for the quick reponse.
