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
- Approved 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. Once you've registered and validated your account you will need to request editor privileges before you can make any edits. Unfortunately this step is necessary due to a large volume of spam that we were receiving. Please send an email to email@example.com and give a sentence or two to describing your interest in OpenSSL so that we know that you are not a spammer!!
We hope to have multiple administrators. Those who have an interest may request admission to the Administrator or Bureaucrat groups.
We would like the content to be as accessible and usable as possible. All contributions must be made available under the current OpenSSL licence (and any future OpenSSL license) as described on the License page. We understand existing OpenSSL subject matter from other sources will inevitably appear here. Please respect copyright restrictions, and only place material here if it is already under the OpenSSL license or if you are the copyright holder and release it under the current and future OpenSSL license, or it is currently in the public domain.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org, +1 301-874-2571.
