A high-performance implementation of the International Data Encryption Algorithm (IDEA) is presented in this paper. Using a novel bit-serial architecture to perform multiplication modulo 216+1, the implementation occupies a minimal amount of hardware. The bit-serial architecture enabled the algorithm to be deeply pipelined to achieve a system clock rate of 125 MHz on a Xilinx Virtex XCV300-6, delivering a throughput of 500 Mb/sec. With a XCV1000-6 device, the estimated performance is 2 Gb/sec, three orders of magnitude faster than a software implementation on a 450 MHz Intel Pentium II. This design is suitable for applications in on-line encryption for high-speed networks
