OpenSSL

OpenSSL is an open-source toolkit that implements SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocols. This test profile makes use of the built-in "openssl speed" benchmarking capabilities.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark openssl.

OpenSSL 3.0

Algorithm: SHA256

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 186 public results since 7 September 2021 with the latest data as of 21 September 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
