    Information security during the past few years has concentrated largely on data in motion - information communicated via networks. However, the focus has been shifting recently to protecting data at rest, which includes information on hard drives, flash memory devices, and magnetic tape. Over time, the technology in encryption-enabled hard drives is likely to change. Drives could increasingly incl... View full abstract»

    A field-programmable gate array implementation of a molecular dynamics simulation method reduces the microprocessor time-to-solution by a factor of three while using only high-level languages. The application speedup on FPGA devices increases with the problem size. The authors use a performance model to analyze the potential of simulating large-scale biological systems faster than many cluster-bas... View full abstract»
