This is a parent page for discussion about API changes being done for OpenSSL version 1.1

The overall goal of this project is to make most data structures opaque to applications. This provides us with a number of benefits:

  • We can add fields without breaking binary compatibility
  • Applications are more robust and can be more assured about correctness
  • It helps us determine which (new) accessors and settors, for example, are needed

Please add sub-pages to discuss particular parts of the library has work progresses.

So far, the SSL library has mostly been made opaque. The old DES API has been removed.
