IDEA encryption algorithm


IDEA implementation on IPF


Generalities

These pages describe an optimized implementation of the IDEA encryption algorithm on the IPF1 processor family of HP (Hewlett Packard) and Intel [Intel00]. This first processor of this family is Itanium which will be used as an experimentation platform for our IDEA implementation.

Topics

The presentation of this IDEA implementation is structured as follows:

Note

1 IPF (Itanium Processor Family) is the current name of the formely-named IA-64 processor architecture.
