Learn how is used to build secure Terabit NaaS cloud networking, a.k.a. SASE, and VPP and CSIT projects' critical roles in this. project is industry leading in providing production-ready open-source technologies and tooling to build secure and fast modern cloud VPNs, including support of encrypted overlays such as IPsec, TLS, QUIC, WireGuard and more.

In this talk, you will learn:

i. How VPP achieves near-linear multi-core horizontal scaling and leverages platform optimizations to achieve Terabit speeds;

ii. How CSIT benchmarking methodologies and tooling ensure the consistency of performance and robustness of Terabit-ready product built with VPP technologies and

iii. How these came together recently on an Intel Xeon Icelake scalable processor family to break the barrier of Terabit rate IPsec on a single dual-socketed Intel Platform (with zero frame loss).
