Cryptographic Support for CPU Architectures

Electrical-Electronics Engineering Department

In order to be able to improve performance of compute-intensive cryptographic algorithms on Intel CPU Architectures, we had to examine and benchmark certain algorithms, to identify the bottlenecks. As a result of our studies of the algorithms and the Intel Architecture, we identified and utilised two methods to add crypto support to IA: write optimized software for the current architecture and propose new instructions to improve the architecture. In this presentation, I will summarize the results of our studies and talk about the algorithms that we improved on IA.

Erdinç Öztürk received his undergraduate degree from Sabancı University in Microelectronis Engineering in 2003. After receiving his undergraduate degree, he joined Cryptography and Information Security lab at Worcester Polytechnic Institute for his PhD studies as a student of Prof. Berk Sunar. During his PhD studies, he worked at Intel as an intern every summer. After receiving his PhD degree from WPI in 2009, he joined Intel as a hardware engineer. Currently he is an assistant professor at Electrical-Electronics Engineering Department at Istanbul Commerce University.
