CloudFlare suffered a massive security issue affecting all of its customers, including Rosetta Code. All passwords not changed since February 19th 2017 have been expired, and session cookie longevity will be reduced until late March.--Michael Mol (talk) 05:15, 25 February 2017 (UTC)


From Rosetta Code
This is an example of a library. You may see a list of other libraries used on Rosetta Code at Category:Solutions by Library.

From the OpenSSL site: The OpenSSL Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured, and Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library.

OpenSSL provides libraries for C language, and the openssl(1) command for shell scripts. Several other languages provide access to OpenSSL. Ruby has 'openssl' in its standard library.

OpenSSL has two libraries:

  • crypto(3) implements cryptographic algorithms, such as ciphers, message digests, and X.509 certificates. crypto(3) also exposes features, including arbitrary-precision integers called BIGNUMs, and a secure random number generator.
  • ssl(3) implements SSL and TLS.

To link OpenSSL to a C program, a typical Unix command is

cc -o program program.c -lcrypto -lssl
