NITROX PX Security Processor Family

High performance cryptographic acceleration of next-generation IP Security (IPsec), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Wireless LAN/WAN security applications

NITROX® PX Security Processor Family

NITROX PX security processors combine cryptographic acceleration with the latest security algorithms providing an ideal platform for the next-generation of security applications. The NITROX PX family includes two variations: 

  • CN16XX family with PCI-Express interface
  • CN15XX family with PCI-X interface support

NITROX PX products are software compatible with the NITROX III and NITROX Lite families of security processors.

Additionally, the CN15XX family is hardware compatible with the NITROX Lite CN10XX Product Family.

NITROX PX processors are highly scaleable and deliver performance ranging from 500Mbps to 2.5 Gbps for full IPsec protocol or SSL offload, 1024bit exponent RSA from 4K to 17K RSA operations per second.
