Description
The nShield modules: nShield F3 10+, nShield F3 500+, nShield F3 6000+, nShield F3 500+ for nShield Connect+, nShield F3 1500+ for nShield Connect+ and nShield F3 6000+ for nShield Connect+ family of secure e-commerce HSMs are multi-tasking hardware modules that are optimized for performing modular arithmetic on very large integers. The nShield modules are FIPS 140-2 level 2 embedded devices. The units are identical in operation and only vary in the processing speed.
