Making the gigabit IPsec VPN architecture secure

R. Friend
2004 Computer  
Current software-based VPNs cannot operate cost-efficiently at gigabit speeds, so developers use security coprocessors to accelerate critical portions of IPsec processing.  ...  Since VPN functionality is the most compute-intensive operation, especially at gigabit speeds, adding VPN hardware acceleration to a router or appliance with a firewall and NAT occurs first.  ...
