Security is one of the most important features in data communication. Cryptographic algorithms are mainly used for this purpose to obtain confidentiality and integrity of data in communication. Implementing a cryptographic algorithm on a general purpose processor results in lower throughput and larger power consumption. In this paper, the authors propose processor architecture to perform the cryptographic algorithms that also speeds up the encryption and decryption process of data. This processor will perform the cryptographic operations like general instructions in GPP.
