The future of cryptography in hardware processors

It’s quite probable that in the future everything will be encrypted, from your grocery list to your medical records. This is an exciting notion, but the field of cryptography is particularly unsettled, and there’s a lot of work being done now to ensure that data can be secured well into the future.

Multiple cryptographic operations could apply to every byte of data, because data is cryptographically protected across multiple layers of the software, network and storage stacks. These processes support highly critical business functions that require strong security, but at the hardware level they are among the most compute-intensive operations in existence. And the demand for cryptographic computation continues to grow, with the amount of data generated each year rising exponentially and as organizations employ larger key sizes, as well as multiple simultaneous cryptographic algorithms, to bolster security. All the while those computing requirements continue to inflate.
