# IDEA implementation on IPF

* *

### Generalities

These pages describe an optimized implementation of the IDEA encryption
algorithm on the IPF^{1} 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.
