The Nucleus Cipher Suite is a set of encryption ciphers or algorithms for securing any type of sensitive data, such as credit card information, during storage and transmission. The software provides different ciphers and tools including DES, 3DES, MD5, SHA, CAST-128, RSA signatures, and random number and prime number generators to protect sensitive information. For example, the Nucleus Cipher Suite software allows users to encrypt sensitive data before saving it to a file system or before transmitting the information over a public network.
The software can be used as a standalone product for general-purpose encryption or with the Nucleus products that require encryption algorithms including the Nucleus Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) software, the Nucleus Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) software and the Nucleus Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software.
Accelerated Technology says the suite software can reduce memory requirements for projects using more than one Nucleus product. Previously, each Nucleus product would have a separate location for its encryption cipher. The Nucleus Cipher Suite provides only one set of algorithms, thus saving memory, the company says.
Licenses for the Nucleus Cipher Suite begin at $4,495. The Nucleus embedded software is sold in source code format without royalty fees.
