OpenSSL is being made available for Red Hat Linux 6.x. This
release brings cryptographic algorithms and protocols as well as
certificate management to these platforms.
2. Relevant releases/architectures:
Red Hat Linux 6.0 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.1 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.2 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.2EE - i386, alpha, sparc
3. Problem description:
OpenSSL, which was first officially shipped with Red Hat Linux
7.0, has been built and tested on Red Hat Linux 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2.
These packages are being made available so that developers may make
use of the encryption algorithms and protocols it provides, most
notably SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) version 3.0.
For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Fvh [filename]
where filename is the name of the RPM.
You will need the base package to support SSL and RSA
functionality in future packages. To build programs that need this
functionality, you will need the development subpackage. The
various other packages are bindings for developers using scripting
