Hardware acclerators are also manufactured by
Hi/Fn, BlueSteel Networks (now Broadcom),
and IRE.

Hi/Fn's 6500 is shipping. Does RSA only.
Their 7811/7511 does the bulk ssl cipher

BlueSteel's uBsec 5601 is in alpha stage.
This is touted as an SSL chip.
Samples should be out by March 15th, 2000.
I believe RC4 is missing on this version.

IRE's is the most impressive. It is design
is done by Analog Devices. It is a low cost
solution that does MD5, RSA, DH, SHA-1, RC4,
3DES, DES etc. It does it all at very impressive
speeds. Unfortunately, it won'b be available till
this summer.

Hope this helps...
