EZchip Semiconductor Ltd has announced its Transparent SSL Proxy solution geared to allow traffic visibility for network monitoring and network security equipment. Intended for integration by network monitoring and security appliance OEMs, the application promises to deliver performance levels of 20Gb/s of SSL Proxy throughput and more than 30,000 new connection set-ups per second, detailed the company.

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) have become prevalent technologies used by a variety of content providers to create secure connections and ensure the privacy of their customers. However, SSL security becomes a great hindrance to enterprises and service-providers that need to monitor their networks for security scanning or for delivering quality-of-service guarantees. Since SSL encrypts TCP/IP traffic, standard firewalls, IPS/IDS and Deep Packet Inspection appliances are rendered ineffective because the traffic is presented in an encrypted tunnel. A Transparent SSL Proxy inspector is used to give IT staff the needed visibility into all traffic that is transiting through their network.

The EZchip Transparent Proxy SSL software is a robust SSL inspection solution that incorporates the production-grade MatrixSSL security stack from INSIDE Secure as well as EZchip's tStack high-performance user-space TCP/IP stack. The software has been designed and optimised to take advantage of the architectural and acceleration features of EZchip's TILE-Gx processor to deliver scalability across the entire TILE-Gx processor family at industry-leading performance per watt, noted the company.

The EZchip Transparent SSL Proxy software application may be paired with EZchip's TILEmpower family of appliances or TILEncore intelligent PCIe adapters to accelerate time-to-market for OEMs and system integrators looking for a white-box solution. Vendors may also choose to design their own appliance hardware with the TILE-Gx family of processors and deploy the EZchip SSL Proxy software along with other advanced software functions on the same device.

The Transparent SSL Proxy software solution is available for evaluation.
