Multichannel Encryption Engine For 100Gbps And Beyond From ViaSat Now Shipping

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Adding to its line of Soft Decision Forward Error Correction (FEC) cores for 100/200G optical communications, ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq:VSAT) is shipping a Multichannel AES-256/128 bit Security IP Core. The core consists of a comprehensive set of pre-integrated security functions that customers can implement into FPGA or ASIC designs. More than just an "AES algorithm," the multichannel engine is a complete security system core.


The security core requires only a one-time configuration load after power-cycle/reset. Once configured, the security core will automatically set up a secure connection to its peer core(s) in the distant-end equipment. The management interface also provides status information to the host, indicating the status of security connection(s) as well as other link statistics.

Key specifications for the security core:
  • 100 Gbps data interface
  • Single byte per frame overhead
  • Built-in, non-deterministic, random number generator generates Traffic Encryption Keys (TEKs)
  • Automatic key-roller and TEK generation
  • Controlled cryptographic bypass for non-encrypted frame data

The core is implemented in a Xilinx Virtex ®-6 FPGA with less than 38% use of available resources. Pricing and customization charges are available upon request by contacting ViaSat at 216-706-7800 or
