Winnow's Content Search Technology performs pattern searching process using parallel search mechanism. The search architecture fundamentally enables exact matching capability. This basic feature is utilized for anchored and un-anchored pattern search on the payloads of packets. This solution can be designed using FPGA and ASIC technologies. By using built-in memories of currently available FPGA, more than 20,000 signatures can be supported. More numbers of signatures can be handled when external memories are used. This content search technology can be applied to the areas where deep packet inspection feature is needed.
