IKE and Hardware Acceleration
IKE algorithms are computationally expensive, particularly in the Phase 1 exchange. Systems that
handle a large number of exchanges can use a Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000
board to handle the public key operations. The Sun Crypto Accelerator 4000
board can also be used to handle expensive Phase 1 computations.
For information on how to configure IKE to offload its computations to the
accelerator board, see How to Configure IKE to Find the Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000 Board. For information on how to store keys, see How to Configure IKE to Find the Sun Crypto Accelerator 4000 Board,
and the cryptoadm(1M) man page.
