SCOTTSVILLE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Castle Shield Holdings, LLC releases test results for its Aeolus VPN Solutions. As stated in our October 11, 2021 press release, Aeolus VPN supports Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) for asymmetric key exchange including three selectable symmetric encryption ciphers for TCP and UDP on the Windows, Linux, and macOS platforms.
Castle Shield’s performance testing focused on the following test attributes:
- Bandwidth for TCP and UDP
- Jitter and Loss for UDP
- Multiple Users for TCP
In addition, we used a minimal test environment as identified below:
- Linux Nodes: 1 vCPU, 4GB RAM
- The testing environment was optimized for UDP rather than TCP
- WireGuard was configured in user mode
- Testing was completed from 5Mbps to 1,000Mbps
- P2|P4|P6|P8 testing was performed @ 1,000Mbps
This press release discusses results at a load of 256Mbps where all platforms achieve optimal results.

The performance test results presented here are by no means exhaustive. The results demonstrate that both Aeolus VPN with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and PQC (ChaCha20 and AES256_GCM) outperformed the open-source baseline solutions.
“Based on our testing, customers who want to use Castle Shield’s PQC solutions will experience no performance degradation. There are many more tests that can and will be run; however, these initial, baseline test results show that our PKI and PQC asymmetric and symmetric encryption solutions are robust and perform well. In addition, our PQC solutions are highly configurable and flexible. Customers can run PQC with three different symmetric ciphers/algorithms and for PQC, customers may choose to run LightSaber, Saber, or FireSaber depending on their specific requirements,” said Dr. Milton Mattox, Chief Technology Officer at Castle Shield, Holdings, LLC.
