OpenSSL Performance Comparison

willmore from #raspberrypi on freenode IRC has done interesting work, comparing Raspberry Pi openSSL performance against other systems; especially Arduino Galileo’s Quark Processor.

Concluding from willmore’s data, the Pi does especially well with AES ciphers: Running with stock performance options (no overclocking), AES performs nearly 7 times faster on the Raspberry Pi than on the Quark processor.

This makes the Pi an excellent and cost-effective choice for all kinds of secure, networked control and data acquisition tasks.
