SSH Demonstrates QuickSec Toolkit Integration With MontaVista Linux
by Mirko Zorz - Monday, 7 April 2003.
The SSH QuickSec Toolkit Family is specifically designed to let network device developers and OEMs quickly and easily implement IPSec functionality. Optimized and validated for use with MontaVista Linux, the SSH QuickSec Toolkit provides industry-leading cost, performance and time to market advantages for incorporating security, such as VPN and firewall functionality, in IP communication devices.

MontaVista Linux is the industry-leading Linux operating system for embedded environments. It provides a common platform across a broad range of processor architectures. MontaVista Linux Professional Edition features a modern OS and kernel, with real-time functionality, multi-process and multi- threaded execution, high performance networking, and extensive bundled software components.

Demonstration tests were conducted using MontaVista Linux Professional Edition running on Intel Architecture (IA-32) platforms with Intel IXP425 XScale processors on the front-end. MontaVista Linux supports both Intel processor families - as such, targeting the XScale-based Intel IXP425 platform with SSH QuickSec Toolkit proved a straightforward cross-compiling exercise. The tests, using the publicly available Netperf benchmark, showed the combined MontaVista/SSH solution quickly approaching line-speed with moderate packet size and conservative CPU utilization, and good throughput for encrypted traffic. For more information about the benchmark and results, please contact SSH.
