NAME
       openssl - OpenSSL cryptographic & Secure Sockets Layer toolkit

DESCRIPTION
       OpenSSL  is  a  crypography  toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets
       Layer (SSLv2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1)  network  proto-
       cols.

       The following features are omitted from the binaries for issues includ-
       ing but not limited to patents, trademark, and US export  restrictions:
       MDC2,  RC3, RC5, IDEA, ECC, Dynamic Engine Loading, CSWIFT Engine, nCi-
       pher Engine, Atalla Engine, NURON Engine,  UBSEC  Engine,  AEP  Engine,
       Sureware Engine, and 4758_CCA Engine.

       A new PKCS#11 engine has been included with ENGINE name "pkcs11".

       The  PKCS#11  engine  is  configured  to  use the Solaris Cryptographic
       Framework. See cryptoadm(1M) for configuration information.

       Due to requirements of the PKCS#11 standard regarding fork(2) behavior,
       some  applications  that use the OpenSSL EVP interfaces and fork() with
       active crypto contexts might experience unexpected behavior.

       To build an OpenSSL application, use  the  following  cc  command  line
       options:

       cc [ flag... ] file... -I/usr/sfw/include -lcrypto -lssl \
          -L/usr/sfw/lib -R/usr/sfw/lib [ library... ]


       Extensive  additional documentation for OpenSSL modules is available in
       the /usr/sfw/share/man directory. This documentation can be viewed with
       man(1) by including /usr/sfw/share/man in the MANPATH environment vari-
       able. Running catman(1M) on the OpenSSL manual pages is not supported.
