The advancements in computing have led to tremendous increase in the amount of data being generated every minute, which needs to be stored or transferred maintaining high level of security. The military and armed forces today heavily rely on computers to store huge amount of important and secret data, that holds a big deal for the security of the Nation. The traditional standard AES encryption algorithm being the heart of almost every application today, although gives a high amount of security, is time consuming with the traditional sequential approach. Implementation of AES on GPUs is an ongoing research since few years, which still is either inefficient or incomplete, and demands for optimizations for better performance. Considering the limitations in previous research works as a research gap, this paper aims to exploit efficient parallelism on the GPU, and on multi-core CPU, to make a fair and reliable comparison. Also it aims to deduce implementation techniques on multi-core CPU and GPU, in order to utilize them for future implementations. This paper experimentally examines the performance of a CPU and GPGPU in different levels of optimizations using Pthreads, CUDA and CUDA STREAMS. It critically exploits the behaviour of a GPU for different granularity levels and different grid dimensions, to examine the effect on the performance. The results show considerable acceleration in speed on NVIDIA GPU (QuadroK4000), over single-threaded and multi-threaded implementations on CPU (Intel Xeon E5-1650).
