The OpenSSL Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust,
commercial-grade, fully 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 tookit and its related
OpenSSL is based on the excellent SSLeay library developed from Eric A.
Young and Tim J.
OpenSSL is licensed under the OpenSSL License, included in this package. This package contains the the OpenSSL cryptography and SSL/TLS static libraries and header files required when developing applications. If you are compiling a 32-bit program, no special compiler options are needed. If you are compiling a 64-bit program, you have to compile and link your application with "xlc_r -q64" or "gcc -maix64". Note: this version is compiled with SSLv2 support. However, it is only aimed to help when linking with tools that need SSLv2 at build time. Do not use it !
