Data breaches pose a threat to almost every enterprise today and are definitely getting more attention than ever before. One of the most effective ways to keep your data safe is by encrypting it, whether in-flight, in-use, or at-rest. However, encrypting all data comes with additional costs to the IT infrastructure and many find it easier to avoid it. This presentation will provide an overview of recent performance improvements in different areas of the Linux cryptographic stack. Covering various architectures and vendors, Danijel will provide insights in how Linux performance did evolve recently, showcasing examples in both asymmetric (TLS handshakes) and symmetric (TLS data encryption, dm-crypt) cryptography. Finally, demystifying topics like TLSv1.3, Elliptic Curve cryptography, and hardware accelerated crypto support will inspire your data protection journey.
