Supercop is a benchmarking framework for cryptographic algorithms like ciphers and hash functions. It automatically benchmarks algorithms across several implementations, compilers, compiler options and input data lengths. Since it is freely available for download the results are easily reproducible and benchmark results for virtually every computer that is capable of running SUPERCOP are available. However, since SUPERCOP is a collection of scripts for the bourne again shell and depends on some command line tools from the POSIX standard in its current form it cannot run on any hardware that does not support POSIX.
