BW: PowerCrypt Encryption Accelerator Endorsed by OpenBSD

“Global Technologies announced that the PowerCrypt encryption
accelerator has been endorsed by OpenBSD (www.openbsd.com).
Kernel-level support for PowerCrypt was developed by OpenBSD,
with device drivers and IPSec code written by members of the
OpenBSD community.

“PowerCrypt is an intelligent, bus-mastering PCI board that
incorporates the Hi/fn 7751 chip. It is a dedicated, high-speed
hardware resource for acceleration of processor-intensive
functions, such as encryption and compression for Internet security
devices and applications. PowerCrypt provides full hardware support
for the complete IPSec protocol stack, including DES, 3DES, SHA-1,
and MD5, as well as RC4 encryption, and LZS and MPPC data
compression schemes.”
