The article is titled "Boosting cryptography performance with Intel libraries" and a preview is here:
"This simple optimization walk-through improves an already-optimized sample OpenSSL application's performance by 35 percent using Intel® cryptography library functions. With the increase in e-commerce and other transactions in enterprise applications, the demand for higher-performing, secure, and scalable communications is on the rise. From a hardware perspective, as the communication load increases, load balancing is typically accomplished by adding more processors."
Why is this of interest to us Oracle security types? - well because the current crop of Oracle password crackers are cracking DES and some like orabf and checkpwd use openssl. This means that Oracle password crackers will run around 40% faster simply by recompiling or relinking.
