       openssl - OpenSSL cryptographic and Secure Sockets Layer toolkit

       OpenSSL	is a cryptography toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSLv2/v3) and
       Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) network protocols.

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

       A new PKCS#11 engine has been included with ENGINE name "pkcs11". The engine was developed
       in Sun and is not integrated in the OpenSSL project.

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

       The  PKCS#11 engine can support the following set of mechanisms: CKM_AES_CBC, CKM_AES_ECB,
       CKM_RC4,  CKM_RSA_PKCS,	CKM_RSA_X_509, CKM_SHA_1, CKM_SHA224, CKM_SHA256, CKM_SHA384, and

       The set of mechanisms available depends on installed Crypto Framework  providers.  To  see
       what mechanisms can be offloaded to the Cryptographic Framework through the PKCS#11 engine
       on a given machine, run the following command:

	 /usr/sfw/bin/openssl engine -vvv -t -c

       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 experi-
       ence unexpected behavior.

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

	 cc [ flag... ] file... -lcrypto -lssl [ library... ]

       Extensive  additional  documentation   for   OpenSSL   modules	is   available	 in   the
       /usr/share/man/man1openssl,  /usr/share/man/man3openssl,  /usr/share/man/man5openssl,  and
       /usr/share/man/man7openssl directories.
