Nginx creates certified third-party module program

Nginx has begun certifying third-party modules for use with its commercially supported, enterprise-level web server and load balancer. The modules add capabilities like security, device detection, and application serving.

Nginx Plus Certified Modules are assured by the company to work with its Nginx Plus server. DeviceAtlas, Forgerock, Phusion, Ping Identity, Stealth Security, and Wallarm have already been certified after passing a test suite.

A dynamic modules capability was released as part of Nginx Plus 11, enabling modules to execute at runtime. (The company has since released version 12 of Nginx plus.) Nginx has had modules that would work with the open source version of Nginx, but there had been no third-party modules with Nginx Plus. Modules are written in C, to provide more performance and flexibility, and Nginx also is offering an Nginx Certified Modules Partner Program, providing test suites and tools to build modules that work on the platform.
