Using Multi-Core Processors to Support Network Security Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Multi-core processors represent a major evolution in computing hardware technology. Multi-core provides a network security application with more processing power from the hardware perspective. However, there are still significant software design challenges that must be overcome. In this paper, the authors present new architecture for multi-core supported network security applications, which aims at providing network security processing without causing performance penalty to normal network operations. They also provide an instance of this architecture - a multi-core supported intrusion detection system based on neural network.
