SG-1100 Crypto Hardware



  • I recently purchased one of these goodies and I coming from "big iron" Intel box down to this baby so its taking a little getting used to on the relatively less horsepower and memory. So far so good just trying to get the optimal rule sets loaded for Suricata sorted out with so much less memory.

    Questions:

    1. The Dashboard indicates no cryptographic hardware even after toggling the Intel or the BSD options under (Advanced) I think. Does this device in fact have the ability to do hardware crypto?

    2. Is there the ability to do any hardware offloading by the NIC's? I haven't change anything in the configuration yet...

    Thanks

    We are still working on the hardware crypto driver. If the concern is "will this be supported in the future?" Yes we will support this for it's entire product life cycle.
