Abstract

See full text

A multicore network security system includes scheduler modules, one or more security modules and post-processing modules. Each security module may be a processing core or itself a network security system. A scheduler module routes input data to the security modules, which perform network security functions, then routes processed data to one or more post-processing modules. The post-processing modules post-process this processed data and route it back to scheduler modules. If further processing is required, the processed data is routed to the security modules; otherwise the processed data is output from the scheduler modules. Each processing core may operate independently from other processing cores, enabling parallel and simultaneous execution of network security functions.
