IP Cores, Inc. Ships a Multi-Gigabit Combo AES/XTS, AES/CBC and AES/GCM IP Core for Attached Storage Applications

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) November 7, 2007

IP Cores, Inc. today announced shipment of a new silicon IP core supporting the IEEE P1619 storage encryption standard, IEEE 802.1AE MACsec network data encryption standard, and legacy storage AES/CBC encryption. The new GXC3 core enables System on Chip (SoC) vendors to build compact cryptographic processors that support the AES/XTS, AES/GCM, and AES/CBC cryptographic algorithms.

“A modification of our popular GXM3 core, the GXC3 core adds support for the legacy AES/CBC encryption and decryption mode without any insignificant increase in size. With the shipment of the GXC3 combo core we enabled our customers to add the support for legacy encryption to their secure storage designs,” said Dmitri Varsanofiev, CTO of IP Cores, Inc. “Our lead customers had converted their early access to GXC3 into a competitive advantage for their networked storage solutions.”

High-speed Encryption Protects Data in Storage and inside the Network

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is widely used to provide data security in storage, both “at rest” on a hard drive or tape and on the network. Addressing the market demand for integrated high-speed AES crypto solutions for these two markets, IP Cores’ GXC3 supports the XTS-AES, GCM-AES, and CBC-AES modes in a single core. GXC3 supports 128-bit and 256-bit AES keys for design flexibility and is designed for throughput of 18.2 Mbits per MHz for a maximum throughput of 10 Gbps at 550 MHz clock frequency.

XEX-based Tweaked CodeBook mode (TCB) with CipherText Stealing (CTS) – abbreviated as XTS – mode of AES is a highly parallelizable mode used in the IEEE standard P1619 for narrow-block hard disk encryption. GXC3 also includes the Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) cipher designed to provide data security and authentication, and a support for the legacy tape and disk encryption Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode. AES in GCM mode allows parallel authentication implementations and therefore can be used for communication channels that require very high-speed authenticated encryption, such as supporting IEEE 802.1AE MACsec security for Ethernet networks, or IPsec RFC 4106. GXC3 configurations support AES/GCM, AES/CBC and AES/XTS encryption and decryption throughput over 10 Gbps in a single core, with easy parallelization for higher throughputs. Gate count for a fully self-contained GXC3 starts at 70K gates.

GXC3 contributes to the IP Cores’ efficient portfolio of AES-based security IP cores that includes support for AES and DES ECB, CTR, OFB, CFB modes, GCM-AES, XTS-AES, LRW-AES, and a set of AES-CCM implementations for a variety of telecommunications security standards (IEEE 802.11i Wi-Fi, 802.16e WiMAX, 802.15.3 UWB WiMedia, and 802.15.4 Zigbee). For networking and storage applications requiring much higher throughputs (40 Gbps, 100 Gbps and above), IP Cores, Inc. offers dedicated GCM and XTS core families. IP Cores, Inc. has also shipped a family of FFT DSP cores. Cores are available in multiple configurations to meet specific SoC throughput, power, and gate count goals.

IGEL Introduces the World’s First VMware VDM Appliance


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 15, 2008

IGEL Technology, the world’s third largest thin client vendor, will demonstrate this week at VMworld, Las Vegas its new VMware VDM Appliance Mode for IGEL Universal Desktops, providing a simplified user experience for customers deploying virtual PCs with VMware’s Virtual Desktop Manager (VDM). This new solution allows IGEL Universal Desktops to be switched, with just a mouse click, from a traditional IGEL thin client to a tightly defined virtual PC access appliance. This provides end-users with a very PC-like experience, with the desktop always maximized on the user’s screen and the inability to access or “kill” local applications and services on the thin client using Ctrl-Alt-Del. The VDM Appliance Mode can be made part of the automatic setup of an IGEL Universal Desktop when it is first attached to a network, making the roll out of VMware hosted virtual PCs as simple as plugging an IGEL device into the network and then logging into Windows.

If organizations need access to more functionality in the IGEL Universal Desktop, the VDM Appliance Mode can be reversed with a single mouse click, giving access to world’s largest range of Digital Services, such as web, multimedia, VoIP, SAP and Java, contained in the terminal. This approach is recommended for knowledge workers using more demanding applications, such as Multimedia or VoIP, that are beyond the capability of the RDP protocol used by the VDM Appliance Mode.

According to a July 2008 report by The 451 Group titled, “Virtualization: Reinventing Desktop Computing,” in twelve months’ time, one-third of general-purpose desktop users and mobile workers may be provided with virtual desktops. While desktop virtualization offers many benefits, including increased security, manageability and scalability, there is a lot of concern regarding the impact to all of these end-users’ experience. By introducing the VDM Appliance Mode, IGEL is addressing this concern and making virtual PC access as simple as possible for end-users and IT Managers.

“IGEL is helping VMware customers by making deployment of their virtual PCs no more complicated than plugging in a network cable,” said Stephen Yeo, worldwide strategic marketing director for IGEL Technology. “In addition, IGEL’s VDM Appliance Mode makes the end-user experience identical to that of a PC, hence improving user acceptance and removing the need for training.”

The switch to VDM Appliance Mode can be easily implemented using the IGEL Remote Management Suite (RMS) software, which comes free with every IGEL thin client. A systems administrator can simply build the VDM Appliance Mode into a user profile, and remotely assign the profile upon the thin client’s first connection. RMS greatly improves administrators’ productivity, by allowing them to easily control all aspects of application delivery and the user experience without ever having to visit the desktop during roll out and production.

IGEL’s VDM Appliance Mode will be available on its Linux powered Universal Desktops from mid October.

IGEL offers one of the largest ranges of virtual PC access devices on the market, ranging from traditional desktops and PC upgrade cards to LCD integrated units and quad screen units. The company’s full range of thin clients will be on display at the upcoming VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 15-18, 2008.

About IGEL Technology:

IGEL Technology is the world’s third largest thin client vendor and is market leader in its home country of Germany (2007 IDC). The company produces the industry’s widest range of thin clients, based on Linux and Microsoft Windows, giving customers access to almost any form of server-based infrastructure and application including virtual PCs from VMware®, Citrix® or Microsoft®, terminal services, mainframe terminal emulation, web, Java, SAP and VoIP. Form factors include traditional desktops, mobile tablets, integrated LCD units, quad screens and PC to thin client conversion cards. All IGEL thin clients come with the bundled, easy to use, IGEL Remote Management Suite, giving you maximum remote control with the minimum cost and hassle. All devices support smart cards for maximum security.

AKVIS Chameleon Plug-in v.6.0: A Breakthrough in Photo Collage Creation

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 24, 2008

AKVIS Software Inc. releases version 6.0 of its photo collage plug-in AKVIS Chameleon. The program is a true breakthrough in photo collage creation. In most cases it does not require precise selection of the objects and now even the pasted fragment can be adapted to the color range of the target picture to provide a natural photo montage. The new version offers one more mode to expand your possibilities and make photo collage creation fun to do. Also there is improved compatibility with Vista SP1 and Photoshop Elements v.6.0.

Creating photo collages with AKVIS Chameleon is fun! This ingenious software makes the process easy and entertaining. Earlier one had to thoroughly select an object for pasting into a new background; with this software this tedious part of work is no longer necessary. You can concentrate on being creative and forget about complicated selection techniques.

In “Montage” mode, for instance, you can take a rectangular part of the source image and then use two pencils – red and blue – to roughly indicate the parts that should appear on the resulting photo collage – for instance, a figure of a person, and the parts that should blend away – the rest of the background and irrelevant objects.

The other two modes were available in the earlier version of Chameleon and it is thanks to them that the program received its name. In “Chameleon” mode the plug-in pastes an object into a picture in such a way that the object adapts to the new color range and blends with the background, as chameleons do. In this way you can add clouds to a clear sunset landscape and the clouds will adopt a red tint. Or you can paste a new nose into a face and the nose will acquire the complexion of the “receiving” face.

Version 6.0 of Chameleon presents a new “Emersion” mode, in which images can be combined to create a seamless photo montage. In contrast to the other modes, in Emersion Mode the pasted fragment does not overlay the background, but embeds into the background so that only certain parts of the fragment are visible. In this mode it is possible to make collages with difficult objects (trees, or apply a graffiti to the wall, etc).

The tool can be helpful to home users who are not experienced in image editing. You can create customized postcards for your loved ones; make a wedding album using all kinds of photos and backgrounds; correct closed eyes (by implanting open eyes from another photo of the series), change the appearance of a person, etc.

Check the Tutorial page at http://akvis.com/en/chameleon-tutorial/ to get a dozen of original ideas.

Designers will appreciate this tool as it allows them to combine images with entirely different color ranges or to create the effect of drawing on a texture surface (crumpled paper, wood, etc), and all that with only a mouse-click.

AKVIS Chameleon is compatible with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo, PhotoImpact, and other popular software. AKVIS Chameleon V. 6.0 for Windows runs on Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista and the Macintosh version runs on the Mac OS X platform.

For a free trial, AKVIS offers 10 days of fully functional use. The users who tried the previous version of Chameleon and have their version expired, now have the opportunity to test the software again.

AKVIS Chameleon sells for USD, downloadable from http://akvis.com . Home users can enjoy the full line of AKVIS plugins in the AKVIS Alchemy bundle (Enhancer, Chameleon, Stamp, Retoucher, Coloriage, Noise Buster, Decorator, Sketch, LightShop, SmartMask and ArtSuite) for USD 5 USD. For business licenses consult the official web-site. One license key will activate the software on two computers, for example, on a desktop and a laptop.
