It's not a topic you can cover here. But both provide means of improving firewall performance. SecureXL will accelerate packets from interface to interface for known traffic thus saving CPU usage and CoreXL adds ability to run multiple inspection cores concurrently. But that's very high level.

Probably the best is to read this SK "Best Practices - Security Gateway Performance" sk98348

In very brief terms:

  • CoreXL: Technology that makes use of multiple processor cores
  • SecureXL: Connection acceleration technology (both throughput and connection establishment)

The linked information other people have provided have more detailed information.

CoreXL and SecureXL will be two of the major topics in an upcoming TechTalk I will be hosting:
