What does Intel AES-NI mean?

What does AES-NI stand for?

Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions
AES-NI (or the Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions; AES-NI) was the first major implementation. AES-NI is an extension to the x86 instruction set architecture for microprocessors from Intel and AMD proposed by Intel in March 2008.

What does enabling AES-NI do?

The Intel Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or New Instructions (AES-NI) engine enables high-speed hardware encryption and decryption for OpenSSL, ssh, VPN, Linux/Unix/OSX full disk encryption and more. … Intel mobile Core i7 and Core i5.

Is AES-NI needed?

0 Development Snapshots Now Available blog posted March 18, 2019, we announced that AES-NI is no longer a requirement for pfSense 2.5. … pfSense version 2.4 requires a 64-bit Intel or AMD CPU, and nanobsd images are no longer a part of pfSense as of version 2.4.

How does AES-NI work?

AES-NI can be used to accelerate the performance of an implementation of AES by 3 to 10x over a completely software implementation. The AES algorithm works by encrypting a fixed block size of 128 bits of plain text in several rounds to produce the final encrypted cipher text.
