I did some changes to the mutex handling in SoftHSM. So now it is faster than OpenSSL.

Server: HP PROLIANT DL380 G6
Processors: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5520 @ 2.27GHz, 4 cores with HT
OS: Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit

SoftHSM v1.2.1 with Botan 1.8.8
OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007


  ods-hsmspeed -r SoftHSM -i 100000 -s 1024 -t 16
  6278.18 sig/s

  openssl speed rsa1024 -multi 16
  5994.3 sig/s


  ods-hsmspeed -r SoftHSM -i 10000 -s 2048 -t 16
  1221.10 sig/s

  openssl speed rsa2048 -multi 16
  1106.7 sig/s
