VIA PadLock Software Security Suite

Securing personal data has never been a more important issue as it is today. With an increasing number of tech savvy cyber criminals using viruses, worms and Trojan horses to steal personal data such as bank account information, credit card information, and even peoples' identities, making sure sensitive information is secure is more essential than ever.

As part of the VIA PadLock Security Initiative, VIA has developed a number of leading edge software utilities that can help protect personal information and ensure an uncompromisingly high level of security performance, by utilizing the various elements of the VIA PadLock Security Engine. Additionally, VIA provides source code so that these software utilities can act as a foundation for 3rd party software developers to build on as they create customized and more feature rich versions.

The VIA PadLock RSA

The VIA PadLock™ RSA Module utilizes the strength and speed of the VIA PadLock Security Engine integrated into all VIA C7® family processors to accelerate public key encryption such as RSA used in Microsoft Windows operating systems. Requiring no program modification, the VIA PadLock RSA Module accelerates public key encryption such as RSA by up to 275%, with negligible impact on processor performance. This module can be installed by end-users and organizations alike on PCs running Microsoft® Windows® Vista, XP or 2000 Professional, or servers running  Windows Server "Longhorn", Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000 Server, ensuring that applications that use the Microsoft Cryptographic Application Programming can leverage the power of PadLock to enhance data security across networks and the Internet.

Applications that use RSA public key encryption include a wide range of Internet applications, including online banking and e-commerce services.

VIA Java™ Cryptography Service Provider

VIA JCP is a VIA PadLock strengthened Java™ Cryptography Service Provider that can be installed onto Microsoft Windows and most Linux distributions that include the Java Runtime Environment, and are powered by any recent VIA processor based on the C5J, C5P or C5XL cores. Once installed, the VIA JCP offloads any appropriate cryptographic function within the Java Cryptography Architecture of the Java Runtime Environment, to the VIA PadLock Security Engine. Specifically, the VIA JCP accelerates any AES cipher included within the Java Cryptography Architecture by up to 90 times, enabling real-time protection of information exchanged and stored. Secure Random Number generation is also strengthened by the VIA JCP through the use of the VIA PadLock Security Engine quantum based random number generators that create truly random numbers at a rate of up to 12 million per second.

Applications that use Java based technologies and could benefit from the increase strength and speed of the VIA JCP include online banking, e-commerce, secure P2P file transfer applications, VoIP and Video on Demand Services.

VIA StrongBox

VIA StrongBox, the latest addition to the suite of applications enabled through the power of the VIA PadLock Security Engine allows users to create encrypted virtual drives on their system. Using the power of the AES feature set included in the VIA PadLock Security Engine, up to 10 virtual drives can be created on a system each with a potential size of 4 GB.

With VIA StrongBox, drives can be unlocked and locked in a simple two click process and additional features can be accessed through a control center. VIA StrongBox also includes automatic lock upon screen saver activation and allows users to name their StrongBox drive files.

The VIA PadLock VPN

The VIA PadLock VPN utility, the latest addition to the VIA PadLock Software Security Suite, allows networking software developers to combine Internet Protocol security and VPN technology with the powerful AES hardware encryption capabilities of the VIA PadLock ACE in recent VIA processors based on C5P 'Nehemiah' and ' Esther' cores. This not only allows users to implement secure site to site links between networks, it can also act as a client/server system to implement secure access between roaming users and a network.

The VIA PadLock VPN Utility is designed to be used with Linux based operating systems, supporting kernel 2.6 or higher and can only be applied on a VIA processor based system that incorporates the VIA PadLock ACE embedded in the C5P Nehemiah core architecture.

To download the latest version of the VIA PadLock VPN utility, please go here.


The VIA PadLock Tru-Delete

The VIA PadLock Tru-Delete Utility adopts the VIA PadLock RNG (Random Number Generator), embedded in all recent VIA processors to enable users to completely wipe unwanted or sensitive files or partitions on the Hard Disk. By utilizing the VIA PadLock RNG, the VIA PadLock Tru-Delete Utility helps to reduce CPU utilization during random number generation, leaving system resources to continue with other tasks such as digital entertainment or productivity applications.

The VIA PadLock Tru-Delete Utility is designed to be used with any system, but performance is significantly enhanced when employed on a VIA processor based system that incorporates the VIA PadLock RNG. As with all utilities in the VIA PadLock Software Security Suite, VIA makes the VIA PadLock Tru-Delete source code available for free so that developers can easily integrate support into existing software programs or customize it according to their individual requirements.

The VIA PadLock ZIP Utility

The VIA PadLock ZIP Utility combines advanced file compression with the powerful AES encryption capabilities of the VIA PadLock Security Co-processor to provide an ultra secure method of sending and storing sensitive information. This easy to use program quickly encodes and decodes files, making it a useful application to add to any computer security platform. The VIA PadLock ZIP Utility is designed to be used with any system, but is significantly enhanced when employed on a VIA processor based system that incorporates the VIA PadLock Security Engine.

The VIA PadLock SDK

The VIA PadLock SDK (Software Development Kit) assists software developers in incorporating support for the VIA PadLock Security Engine and the VIA PadLock RNG (Random Number Generator) features, embedded in all recent VIA processors.

The VIA PadLock SDK consists of a step by step programming guide, source code for both Microsoft® Windows® and Linux as well as a demonstration program that will appeal to beginner and experienced programmers alike.
