SSE2 optimizations for Serpent in XTS mode.
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hello everyone, Recently i was looking at libbotan's changelog, and i found that using SSE2 parallell processing for serpent was quite a speed improvement. Same in the neat little DiskCryptor program, wich uses the same kind of optimization for serpent in XTS mode. There is no point in using SSE2 in CBC and other modes wich require sequential processing, but in XTS's (and a few other modes) case this really makes a big difference. Is there anyone capable and or willing to implement this in the linux kernel ? Maybe in the form of a patch or a module ? Dont have the sources from the diskcryptor implementation, but libbotan does sure have one as well.
