Abstract

See full text

An architecture for an integrated circuit apparatus and method that allows significant performance improvements for signature based network applications. In various embodiments the architecture allows high throughput classification of packets into network streams, packet reassembly of such streams, filtering and pre-processing of such streams, pattern matching on header and payload content of such streams, and action execution based upon rule-based policy for multiple network applications, simultaneously at wire speed. The present invention is improved over the prior art designs, in performance, flexibility and pattern database size.
