Pico Computing, the technology leader in hardware-based acceleration, will be demonstrating breakthrough applications in password recovery and real time encryption at
In the first application, the company has partnered with ElcomSoft, whose suite of password recovery tools allows corporate, government, and law enforcement organizations to decrypt files, documents, and other password-protected objects and devices. Pico Computing’s Windows/PCIe-based solution, hosting ElcomSoft’s front end, provides FPGA-driven hardware-accelerated password recovery at nearly three times the throughput of GPU-based solutions, and in one quarter of the computing footprint while consuming considerably less power.
Pico Computing will also be presenting its FIPS 140-2-compliant inline encryption/decryption solution, demonstrating FPGA-driven throughput of up to 40 gigabits/second. Supporting applications that require the secure transfer of large amounts of data, it automatically encrypts the outgoing data stream in real time without the need for intervening steps or software operations. Unlike routers that encrypt data in software, Pico Computing’s solution performs the task via inline hardware to provide orders of magnitude improvements in performance and with greater security than software-based encryption can offer. On the receiving end is an inline decryption module.
The two applications to be demonstrated at Black Hat are based on Pico Computing’s M-505 module, each mounted on an application-optimized carrier board. See them both at Caesar’s Palace,
About Pico Computing
Pico Computing addresses the two foremost challenges associated with the real-time processing of big data: time and money. By solving the big data compute problems, processes that used to take hours are reduced to seconds; what used to require thousands of expensive servers is accomplished often in a single, low-power, low-cost rack space, enabling the creation of new and highly differentiated business value. Pico Computing’s customer applications span cryptography to bioinformatics; image processing to networking; scientific computing and simulation to signal processing; and persistent consumer apps to making the “Internet of Things” real. Whether targeted to HPC or embedded applications, Pico Computing’s modular and highly scalable architecture, based on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technologies, brings orders-of-magnitude performance gains, greatly reduced energy costs, the industry’s smallest form factor, and simplified application design. Pico Computing also offers full customization, application, and engineering services. For more information, please visit http://www.picocomputing.com.
