I have been using gnupg for about a year now to protect some very large 
files, averaging 3.5GB in size.  On a PIII/600 it takes about 9.5 
minutes to encrypt and about 11.5 minutes to decyrpt - which is roughly 

I have tried different key lengths (768 - 2048) and I've tried every 
cipher available to try to improve performance, but I get about the same 
result with each.

Any suggestions on improving performance?

Are there any hardware-based implementations on a PCI board for FreeBSD?
