Using wolfSSL on Cavium Octeon creates exceptionally speedy and secure network connections.

The market is hungry for a better solution for SSL/TLS processing

Phact, developer of Sirius, a high performance TCP/IP stack for Cavium Octeon, has partnered with wolfSSL to deliver a high performance SSL/TLS engine at a never seen price/performance ratio. Using Octeon’s hardware encryption engines, acceleration up to 670% can be obtained for AES, 3DES, CAMELLIA, RSA, and various other ciphers and hash functions. Due to Sirius’ architecture, invoking multiple cores will almost linearly increase performance. Imagine the capabilities when using the latest OCTEON-III processor running on 48 cores.
The white paper section of the Sirius website ( ) has a document with benchmark results and a guideline on how to make wolfSSL “Octeon-ready”.

Jeroen Grijmans, CEO of Phact adds: "We have chosen wolfSSL as the SSL/TLS layer for our TCP/IP protocol stack because it is widely used, and very well suited for porting to the Octeon multi core architecture. With WolfSSL and our Sirius TCP/IP stack we can deliver improved stability and performance to our customers which enables them to boost their business."

Larry Stefonic, CEO of wolfSSL: “We are truly thrilled to be working with Phact on high performance, scalable TLS! The market is hungry for a better solution for SSL/TLS processing, and our work with Phact will help fill the market void."
