Cavium Demonstrates Multiple OpenDataPlane Applications at Linaro Connect USA 2014Posted on Friday, September 19, 2014 in News hub By Marshall Guillory
On Thursday this week at Linaro Connect 2014 Cavium demonstrated a high performance implementation of ODP-IPSec packet processing on a Cavium MIPS SoC on both Linux-Userspace and Bare Metal runtime environments. The demo was able to produce 40GB/s IPSec ESP processing.

Demonstrate the performance effective implementation of ODP-IPSec packet processing on Cavium SoC on Linux-Userspace and Bare Metal runtime environments.
IPSec ESP Processing (Authentication and Cipher)
40G Line rate
Linux User Mode environment support
Bare metal environment support
AES-CBC Cypher ( RFC 3602)
HMAC-SHA1-96 Authentication (RFC 2404)
Multiple SA support
Following diagram depicts the test setup. Following topology has been chosen to demonstrate the maximum throughput capability of CN68XX IPsec processing(40Gbps).
Device Under Test (ODP-IPSEC App) receives clear UDP packets and does the ESP IPSec packet processing (AES Ciphering and SHA1 authentication) in Tunnel mode and sends the packets back on the same interface at 40G line rate.
