Support for Algorithms in the Suite B Specification for IPSec by the On-Board Crypto Engine in Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers

The IPSec algorithms required by Suite B are now supported by the hardware crypto engine on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers that have embedded hardware-accelerated VPN encryption.

Suite B requirements comprise four user interface suites of cryptographic algorithms for use with IKE and IPsec, which are described in RFC 6379 and RFC 6380 respectively. Each suite consists of an encryption algorithm, a digital signature algorithm, a key agreement algorithm, and a hash or message digest algorithm.

Suite B provides a comprehensive security enhancement for Cisco IPsec VPNs, and allows additional security for large-scale deployments. Suite B is the recommended solution for organizations requiring advanced encryption security for the wide-area network (WAN) between remote sites.
