- [Instructor] Cryptography requires…a great deal of mathematical computation,…and therefore it's fairly slow.…Engineers often make cryptography more efficient…by building special-purpose hardware…that is designed specifically for encryption and decryption.…As you learned when we covered SSL and TLS,…the two systems participating in an SSL or TLS communication…go through a complex handshaking process…where they discover the cipher suites…that each system supports, select a common algorithm,…and then generate a session key to be used…for the remainder of the communication.…
The process of selecting ciphers…and generating a session key is quite difficult…from a mathematical perspective, and for that reason…it is often a bottleneck for web servers…and other devices that participate in…many different TLS sessions simultaneously.…SSL and TLS accelerators are special-purpose hardware…designed specifically to complete…the SSL and TLS handshaking process.…When a device begins this process,…it hands control over to the accelerator,…
