The Sun Cryptographic Accelerator 4000 (SCA 4000) is a highperformance secure networking solution for Sun servers. It is a PCI card consisting of a Gigabit Ethernet adapter with on-board cryptographic acceleration hardware and a secure cryptographic key store. The card enhances server network performance by off-loading compute intensive cryptographic calculations (asymmetric and symmetric) from the server's CPU, accelerating both IPsec and SSL processing. The SCA 4000 also provides a secure remote administration capability. It is tightly integrated with Sun's server hardware and software.
