an implementation of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols
LibreSSL is an implementation of the TLS/crypto stack forked from OpenSSL to improve security as well as enable better portability.
The source code is developed upstream by the OpenBSD project and regularly re-packaged for portable use by the GNU/Linux and BSD distributions.
This package includes:
- openssl, an utility which provides tools for managing keys and certificates
- libcrypto: a library of cryptography fundamentals
- libssl: a TLS library, backwards-compatible with OpenSSL
- libtls: a new TLS library, designed to make it easier to write foolproof applications.
