Event Details


of Silicon Valley Presents:


Combating Cyber Attacks: Using a 288-core server




Date: Tuesday, February 12, 2012


Speaker: Tom DeCanio, Networking & Security Applications Architect, Tilera Corporation


Time: 6:30 PM (PT) Networking/Refreshments, 7:00 PM Presentation


Location: Cadence / Bldg 10, 2655 Seely Ave, San Jose, CA (map)




Tilera processors provide a standard Linux platform, which can process very high throughput network traffic. With cyber attacks becoming more frequent, organized and costly in the damage they inflict on governments, businesses, and critical infrastructure, there is a significant need for hardware and software that can process live network traffic and prevent such attacks. The combination of Suricata, a high performance network intrusion detection and prevention system sponsored by the US government and the Tilera-based platforms, compacting up to 288 cores and 32 10Gbps ports in a 1U chassis, provides the highest performance and performance-per-watt-per-rack-unit system designed to detect and prevent malware, botnets, spyware, spam, worms, backdoor exploits, Trojans and zombie machines.


This talk will examine, in detail, how the features of the TILE-GX processor and the on-chip mesh intelligent packet processor (mPIPE) are leveraged to implement the Suricata functions and deliver high performance.
