Solaris 10 What's New

OpenSSL and OpenSSL PKCS#11 Engine

This feature is new in the Solaris Express 8/04 release.

This release of Solaris includes the OpenSSL libraries and commands in /usr/sfw.

This release also includes an OpenSSL Engine interface to PKCS#11 so that OpenSSL consumers can access hardware and software cryptographic providers from the Solaris Cryptographic Framework.

Note –

Because of cryptographic import restrictions in some countries, symmetric key cryptographic algorithms are limited to 128–bit if the SUNWcry package is not installed. The SUNWcry package is not included with the Solaris software. This package is available instead as a separate controlled download.
