Summary: 
A non-deterministic finite automaton (NFA)-based parallel string matching scheme is proposed. To parallelize the operations of NFAs, a graphic processing unit (GPU) is adopted. Considering the resource occupancy of threads and size of the shared memory, the optimized resource allocation is performed in the proposed string matching scheme. Therefore, the performance is enhanced significantly in all evaluations.
