Content Outline


Site guidelines, legal and admininstrative issues.


This section contains the automagically generated man pages from the OpenSSL git repository, and similar "man" style reference documentation. The man pages are automatically imported from the OpenSSL git repository and local wiki modifications are submitted as patches.

Usage and Programming

This section has discussions of practical issues in using OpenSSL

  • Building from Source
Where to find it, the different versions, how to build and install it.
Programming techniques and example code
Use of EVP is preferred for most applications and circumstances
  • Low Level APIs
More specialized non-EVP usage

Concepts and Theory

Discussions of basic cryptographic theory and concepts Discussions of common operational issues

Internals and Development

This section is for internal details of primary interest to OpenSSL maintainers and power users


For the material that doesn't seem to fit anywhere else

  • New topics pending categorization (not yet linked elsewhere)
  • Incomplete or contentious pages under discussion

I like it - it brings the interesting content right up front. It probably needs to have some top and tail text to describe what this wiki is for, and how to contribute. I added a link to the Elliptic Curve Cryptography page above --Matt 15:02, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
