Posted on: 02/09/2007 06:04 PM

After a five year journey that included a suspended validation last year, the Open Source Software Institute (OSSI) has announced that OpenSSL has regained its FIPS 140-2 validation and is now available for download.

OpenSSL is an open source toolkit that allows programs to securely exchange data in the same fashion as proprietary versions of Secure Sockets Layer encryption.

Developers are currently working on a user's guide and plan to make it available in the upcoming weeks.
