Description
The Cavium Nitrox XL NFBE FIPS Cryptographic Modules are a cryptographic component of the Nitrox XL NFBE cryptographic acceleration boards that provide cryptographic key protection and acceleration for both asymmetric and symmetric encryption operations. The cryptographic module is contained in its own secure enclosure that provides physical resistance to tampering and zeroization of plaintext cryptographic material in the event the enclosure is opened.
