-We are considering converting our Encryption method from DES3 to AES.

-I'm wondering what are the impacts on consumption of MIPS and if we can use a cryptographic card (or processor).





-With CA Top Secret r16.0, CA Top Secret now uses hardware encryption by default and uses software only if hardware encryption is not successful. 

-CA Top secret control options AESENC controls what encryption level is. 


Additional Information:
