The Broadcom BCM5850 is a breakthrough chip that delivers new levels of SSL/TLS processing performance to secure web servers, proxy servers, and high-speed networking equipment that process SSL/TLS encrypted data. Designed to work in conjunction with the BCM 582x family of PCI Security Processors, the BCM5850 provides direct APIs to accelerate processing of industry standard, compute intensive protocol operations:
# SinglePass record processing
# Session key derivation
# Finished message processing
# Client certificate verification
The BCM5850 software APIs provide software compatibility with Broadcom's BCM582x Public Key Processing ICs. In addition to unlocking additional performance improvements in SSL/TLS Web Servers and Proxy Servers that offload public key operations using the BCM582x chips, the BCM5850 allows rapid development and deployment of complete systems utilizing OpenSSL through the use of the Broadcom supplied Software Reference Library (SRL) and OpenSSL patches for the BCM5850 APIs.
It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.
Do not forget to check with our site as often as possible in order to stay updated on the latest drivers, software and games.
Try to set a system restore point before installing a device driver. This will help if you installed a wrong driver. Problems can arise when your hardware device is too old or not supported any longer.
