SiSoftware Crypto Benchmarks Released
London, UK, September 1, 2008 - SiSoftware releases its suite of Crypto benchmarks as part of the SiSoftware Sandra 2009, the latest version of our award-winning utility, which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, and networks.
Cryptography has become an important part of our digital life: it allows us to conduct safe transactions online, certify programs and services, keep our data secure and much more. The speed at which cryptographic operations (encryption, decryption, hashing, signing) can be performed is thus very much important.
While there are many algorithms in use, the most popular are AES (AES128, AES256) for encrypton/decryption and SHA (SHA1, SHA256) for hashing. The new benchmarks measure all of them.
In the past only dedicated security devides had hardware accelerated cryptographic functions; many processors today now support dedicated instructions for such purposes, proving yet again that cryptography has become mainstream.
- 4 architectures natively supported (x86, x64/AMD64/EM64T, IA64/Itanium2, ARM)
