CXL – The Latest Specification in Secured Network Traffic

Welcome to the wonderful and cryptic world of secured traffic with CXL being the latest specification to adopt it. CXL2.0 specification introduces integrity & data encryption (IDE) schematics for both CXL.io & CXL.cachemem protocols. CXL.io pathway uses PCIe specification defined IDE, while CXL.cachemem related updates are introduced in CXL2.0 specifications. In this blog we’ll provide a broad overview of what a secure setup looks like and the strategies adopted by CXL for the same.

De-mystifying CXL: An overview

As Data Center and Artificial Intelligence applications take center stage , last few years have seen the advent of various high bandwidth interconnect technologies. Compute Express Link (CXL), is an aspiring new interconnect technology for high bandwidth devices such as accelerators with memory, high density compute cards, and GPU comprised accelerators. The specification is defined by CXL Consortium https://www.computeexpresslink.org/. Synopsys has developed a comprehensive ­­CXL verification subsystem, being already used by Early Adopters planning to release their first CXL applications. CXL verification subsystem leverages industry popular Synopsys PCI Express Verification IP. Synopsys recently introduced Industry’s first CXL IP solution.
