What is OpenSSL?OpenSSL Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured, and Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library. The project is managed by a worldwide community of volunteers that use the Internet to communicate, plan, and develop the OpenSSL toolkit and its related documentation.
OpenSSL is based on the excellent SSLeay library developed by Eric A. Young and Tim J. Hudson. The OpenSSL toolkit is licensed under an Apache-style licence, which basically means that you are free to get and use it for commercial and non-commercial purposes subject to some simple license conditions.
Where can I find out more about OpenSSL and VMS?

For compatibility reasons executables has been built on lowest available OpenVMS version.
Currently v7.3 for Alpha, v7.3 for VAX and v8.4 for IA64 environment all linked against HP TCPIP product sharable objects.
