|After five years of inactivity... OpenSSL for AmigaOS (3.x) gets updated! The OpenSSL Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured, and OpenSource toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and TransportLayer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library. |
OpenSSL is based on the excellent SSLeay library developed from Eric A. Young and Tim J. Hudson. The OpenSSL toolkit is licensed under a dual-license (the OpenSSL license plus the SSLeay license) situation, which basically means that you are free to get and use it for commercial and non-commercial purposes as long as you fulfill the conditions of both licenses.
The OpenSSL binary for AmigaOS is provided fully native (no ixemul), which support for the following ciphers:
mdc2, md4, md5, hmac(md5), sha1, rmd160, rc4, des cbc, des ede3, idea cbc, seed cbc, rc2 cbc, blowfish cbc, cast cbc, aes-128 cbc, aes-192 cbc, aes-256 cbc, camellia-128 cbc, camellia-192 cbc, camellia-256 cbc, sha256, sha512, whirlpool, aes-128 ige, aes-192 ige, and aes-256 ige.
Developer material can be found in the included devfiles.tar.7z file, read first the devfiles.txt if you want to check the provided files. Tree structure is keep with GeekGadgets compatibility in mind. Static libraries are provided for libnix and ixemul including builds for 68020 and 68060 - more info at the included amiga.readme.txt file.
