Module Type
Software
Embodiment
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
Network Security Services (NSS) is a set of open source C libraries designed to support cross-platform development of security-enabled applications. NSS implements major Internet security standards. NSS is available free of charge under a variety of open source compatible licenses. See http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/nss/.
