Is AES the same as AES-NI?
Intel AES New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) is a new encryption instruction set which contains improvements to the AES algorithm and accelerates the encryption of data in the Intel Xeon processor family and the Intel Core processor suite. AES is a symmetric block cipher that encrypts/decrypts data through several rounds.
How do I check my AES-NI support?
Visit the following Intel website and look up the processor model to see if it supports AES-NI: http://ark.intel.com/search/advanced/?AESTech=true. Download CPU-Z application and run it on the client. This will display the CPU capabilities: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html.
