This section provides an overview of what openssl is, and why a developer might want to use it. It should also mention any large subjects within openssl, and link out to the related topics. Since the Documentation for openssl is new, you may need to create initial versions of those related topics.

OpenSSL is a robust, commercial-grade, and full-featured toolkit for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols. It is also a general-purpose cryptography library. For more information about the team and community around the project, or to start making your own contributions, start with the community page. 2 Testing with OpenSSL Connecting to SSL Services. OpenSSL comes with a client tool that you can use to connect to a secure server. The tool Testing Protocols that Upgrade to SSL. When used with HTTP, TLS wraps the entire plain-text communication channel to Using Different Handshake Formats. SSL is being used more often than plain text connections, so the usual testing with telnet may not work anymore. Fortunately, it's possible to use openssl command to test webservers, POP3S/IMAPS/SMTPS mailserver, FTPS servers etc. which use SSL. Testing HTTPS Compare load times of the unsecure HTTP and encrypted HTTPS versions of this page. Each test loads 360 unique, non-cached images (0.62 MB total). For fastest results, run each test 2-3 times in a private/incognito browsing session. SSL_CTX_set_client_CA_list to tell the client to send its client certificate; If you don't want to use the parameters for every connection (i.e. the common context), then set it for each SSL connection with, for example, SSL_use_certificate and SSL_use_PrivateKey. A lot goes on with SSL_CTX_set_client_CA_list. The OpenSSL library includes a test suite that exercises components from both libcrypto.a and libssl.a. Ensuring the library builds and executes its tests properly is a keystone to using the library. This page will show you how to isolate the test and the cause under many conditions.

However, all test results are given in terms of cycles in order to provide an accurate representation of the microarchitecture’s capabilities and to eliminate any frequency discrepancies. Speed tests OpenSSL ‘Speed’ Benchmark was run for the performance tests. Some example command lines are:./bin/64/openssl speed -evp aes-128-gcm

bash - How can I use openssl to get results from HTTP GET The openssl command does not terminate because the web server didn't close the connection. Remember that by default HTTP keeps connections open after each request as a performance optimization. Once one request finishes, another request can be sent over the same connection, rather than closing and reopening a new connection. /community/contacts.html - OpenSSL

OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability scanner - Use Cases. This tool attempts to identify servers vulnerable to the OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability (CVE-2014-0160). When such a server is discovered, the tool also provides a memory dump from the affected server.
