NITROX III Security Processor Family
Delivers high security and compression performance for application delivery and cloud computing with upto 300K SSL ops/s, 40Gbps security and 25Gbps compression
To provide an ideal platform for the next-generation of security applications.
NITROX III products are software compatible with the Cavium NITROX PX and NITROX Lite family of security processors. Cavium provides a comprehensive Software Development Kit that includes C-source code for Linux and FreeBSD drivers. The SDK also includes APIs for OpenSSL, OpenSSH, IPsec, Zlib, key management, test utilities and reference code for easy portability
NITROX III processors are highly scaleable and deliver performance ranging from 5 Gbps to 32 Gbps for full IPsec protocol or SSL offload, 1024bit exponent RSA from 35K to 230K RSA operations per second, and 2048bit exponent RSA up to 41K RSA operations per second enabling an optimal solution for applications such as:
For applications requiring 2.5 Gbps or below see our software compatible NITROX PX family.
