Welcome to the OpenSSL Wiki

This wiki is under construction as we figure out what works and what doesn't. Please see the basic rules which are summarized here:

This wiki is intended for the OpenSSL community. There are a few minor restrictions so we don't have to fool with capchas and constantly monitor for spam, defacements, and vandalism. The essence of the restrictions are:

  • Everyone can read content
  • Registered users can add or edit content

We encourage your participation and hope you will add pages and improve existing pages. If you want to add or edit content you should register for an account by clicking Create Account in the upper right hand corner of the page.

We hope to have multiple administrators. Those who have an interest may request admission to the Administrator or Beauracrat groups.

We would like the content to be as accessible and usable as possible. We ask that all original content be in the public domain. We understand existing OpenSSL subject matter from other sources will inevitably appear here. Please respect other's copyright, and only place material if you are the copyright holder. If you are the holder and do place existing material, please place the content in public domain or under the OpenSSL license.

It remains to be seen how this will work out. If you think your contributions have been blocked or modified inappropriately it was probably done by accident; please contact Steve Marquess, marquess@opensslfoundation.com, +1 301-874-2571.
