This package contains the openssl binary and related tools.

It is part of the OpenSSL implementation of SSL.

You need it to perform certain cryptographic actions like :

  • Creation of RSA, DH and DSA key parameters
  • Creation of X.509 certificates, CSRs and CRLs
  • Calculation of message digests
  • Encryption and decryption with ciphers
  • SSL/TLS client and server tests
  • Handling of S/MIME signed or encrypted mail

Note: if you are looking for the Windows version of OpenSSL, go to the SourceForge website.
