The high speed cryptography (HSC) Hard IP block provides high performance encryption/decryption of single or multiple concurrent data streams using a range of ciphers. HSC is an independent subsystem that exists in Versal devices, including those targeted for deployment in networking and data center applications. As such, the off-chip sources and destinations of the data streams serviced by HSC are typically connected via industry standard networking and data center interfaces, for example, OTN/FLexE, Ethernet, and PCI Express. The primary intended usage of HSC is for cryptography services to enable secure transmission of information over the data center interconnect (DCI). The HSC block also optionally gathers statistics whilst performing those cryptography function.
