Please see our papers which explore the possibilities in depth:

	Rethinking Hardware Support for Network Analysis and

	V. Paxson et al., Proc. USENIX Hot Security, August 2006.


	An Architecture for Exploiting Multi-Core Processors to
	  Parallelize Network Intrusion Prevention,
	V. Paxson, R. Sommer, and N. Weaver,
	Proc. IEEE Sarnoff Symposium, May 2007, to appear.
