Hotchips: Sun's 3rd generation on-chip UltraSPARC security acclerator

Lawrence gave me the kind approval to publish his presentation from the HotChips event, which ended yesterday in Stanford. In his presentation he talks about the upcoming extensions to the cryptographic department of the next generation of CMT chips (codenamed Rainbow Falls) from Sun:

The presentations digs deep into the technical reasoning and implementation of the encryption facilities of RF. Really worth a read. But there is more in the presentation. Several slides hints to features of the Rainbow Fall, e.g.: RF will contain a instruction for IP Checksum Generation (useful for IPsec), it will have 16 crypto accelerators, 8 strands per core … but read it on your own :)
