KDF Changes[edit]

I think the [modified] KDF example may be too new for most users of OpenSSL. For example, it appears OSSL_PARAM is part of an upcoming release: https://www.openssl.org/docs/manmaster/man3/OSSL_PARAM.html .

I think the new example is going to cause confusion for most users rather than helping them. Also, answers on Stack Overflow a pointing back to the wiki and the old example.

Perhaps you can add the new example as a distinct second example, and clearly state it is part of the OpenSSL 3.0 API.

Shouldn't this be discussed on the discussion tab of the page that was changed? That would probably make it a little easier for the rest of us to understand what's going on, rather than this random discussion added to a user page that doesn't even exist...

Yeah, I was trying to have a sidebar to encourage an edit. Sorry about that.

I have added a note on the "offending page's" discussion tab, to clarify the hows and the whys for changes happening there. Hope that helps.
