Uninstall OpenSSL

We have a legacy HP-UX 11.11 server that has a number of security vulnerabilities associated with OpenSSL. We have a project in the works to replace this server but until then I need to deal with the vulnerabilities. No applications on the server utilize SSL, so my plan was to simply remove it. However, when I mark OpenSSL for removal I get a long list of dependencies, including the following:

WBEMP Services

Is it actually feasible to remove OpenSSL without breaking other things? Any advise or thoughts greatly appreciated.

HPUX system management home page (SMH) uses SSL.
Also, there is whole subsystem to handle that among other things.

That stuff listed are various providers for WBEM, LVM which provide information about those subsystem, but are not involved in their functioning.
So systems like HPSIM can get information via WBEM over network about the machine.
Or SMH web interface can be used to administer the system via clicking the browser.

If you are having issues with security scans showing that, you can disable SMH (if you don't use it).

Now your server listenes on various ports (80,443,2301..) due to that service being active.
Security scans will find out about openssl weakness if that service is up.

If stopped/disabled, nothing will pop out regarding that subject. No uninstall is required.
The smh utility from command line should still work.

Have you consider rather upgrading the OS ?
HPUX v1 is a really old operating system.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the reply. We do have an upgrade project in the works but it's a couple months out from completion.
Can I simply disable all web services without uninstalling anything? Our ERP system does not use any web or SSL services.

Finally getting back to this issue. Can anyone tell me how to disable/stop OpenSSL, or at least stop it from listening on port 443?

That would come down to your web server, what is it?

The webserver is Apache. Not sure of the full version but the OS is 11.11.
