Desktop Supercomputer

Parallel Crypto LLC has a desktop supercomputer consisting of a host PC and a massively parallel GPU accelerator. The host PC has:

GPU Accelerator

The GPU accelerator is an NVIDIA Corporation Tesla C2050 board. It has:

(“Gigaflops” = 109 floating point operations per second. “Teraflops” = 1012 floating point operations per second.)

Hybrid Multicore Cluster Parallel Computer

Parallel Crypto LLC has access to the “tardis” 40-core research parallel computer in the Department of Computer Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This is a hybrid multicore cluster parallel computer consisting of a supervisory frontend node and ten quad-core computational backend nodes connected by a dedicated 1 Gbps switched Ethernet network. The frontend node has:

Each of the ten backend nodes has:

Hardware Random Number Generator

Parallel Crypto LLC has a TectroLabs TL200 hardware random number generator. The device is capable of generating true random data at a rate of 2 megabits per second for cryptographic research and other purposes.
