Shabziger contains the Secure Hash Algorithm-3 (SHA3) 3rd round candidates: Blake, Groestl, JH, Keccak, Skein and a SHA2 implementation from two sources. Area per throughput optimized versions are provided by the Cryptographic Engineering Research Group (CERG) of the George Mason University, the ETH provided versions optimized for a pre-set throughput rate of 2.488 Gbps (the payload of a OC-48 frame)
All sources for this chip are available under Our SHA-3 Page.
The name Shabziger is a play on the SHA algorithm and a local cheese type called 'Schabziger' from the Glarus region. Traditionally the Microelectronics Design Center names its chips after Swiss Cheese (see Sbrinz for example).
